Behold the vibrant colors of Autumn.
Dry leaves hanging low on branches
changing tones from Summer green to
crimson, saffron, orcherous, chestnut.
The splendor of Fall's glory unveils.
Colored leaves begin a seasonal dance
as brisk harvest winds gaily flutter.
Hear the chorus streaming in the air.
Leaves swishing and swirling freely,
causing my heart to leap in harmony.
Lawns arrayed in a blanket of leaves;
decorated pumpkins line porch steps;
Cute scarecrows crafted of raffia;
Children blissfully bounding into
piles of freshly raked tinted leaves.
All the sights and sounds of Autumn
an enchanted display of Nature's beauty,
invigorating my senses fresh and anew.
My soul wrapped in bountiful warmness,
like the blazing colors of Fall unfolding.
