The autumn sun comes peeping out And melts the morning frost Little birds are heading south The bees mourn summer's loss Leaves are turning gold and red Annual flowers fade away Time to prune the lovely roses Chrysanthemums now hold sway Big orange pumpkins ready for pie Fodder shocks stand in the field Squash and turnips for the stew All part of summer's yield Gentle days give way to nippy nights Pulling quilts up 'round our chins Dreaming of friends and loved ones As the holiday season begins Frosted leaves fall to the ground Winds blow them toward the sky Enjoying the frosty kiss of autumn Now that summer has waved good-bye Kathleen McCoy Eldridge© October 21, 2009 All Rights Reserved
