When Autumn Leaves
Autumn brings the magic of the holiday seasons.
Those fall colors are so bold, brilliant and beautiful. The falling leaves fill us with nostalgia. Everyone who possibly can really should get out and enjoy the sound, the smell and the beauty that only this season can bring. Watch the leaves play tag and race on the roadways and the forest floors. It really is a carnival of sorts of color schemes before our eyes.
Most Colorful Season of All
Winter was so wonderful, the holidays a thrill
building many snowmen, sliding down a hill.
Weren’t we glad though when we saw spring
when life is again renewed in every little thing?
Babbling brook with turning trees
Is it nature why everything living seems to fall in love?
A magic in this season, surely sent from up above.
What is it about rebirth, that gives our heart a lift?
As if each flower that blooms, has been sent to us a gift.
Then so suddenly all is full, this is summer at our door.
Nature heavy laden colors, surrounding us galore.
Summer seems to be forever so why are we so surprised
when autumn falls upon us, turning colors before our eyes?
Even this is so beautiful sending down a gold rainbow,
swirling on a gentle breeze. Oh, where did summer go?
She was so hot while she lasted we sizzled at her touch
Her days so long and lazy we will miss her so very much
Yet we turn around and she is gone, not even bidding us ado
Her memories will last us though til she is back with us anew
Autumn now will cool us some as leaves suddenly begin to fall
Chasing across fields and roads sending swirls up six feet tall
Brilliant colors leave us in awe and take our breath away
Wishing this would never end this beauty of decay
How can these trees in dying give such joy in their wake?
Magnificent beyond explaining, flowing softly down a lake
This golden beauty now of fall is my favorite I believe
Can I bear then to say goodbye, when Autumn has to leave?
Do you ever watch leaves play chase and tag with each other?
