Happy Fall Ya'll

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven!"
Ecclesiastes 3:1


AUTUMN

In all its burnished glory
Leaves falling to the ground
At first floating silently
Drifting without a sound

Rich colors, copper and yellows
On the ground unfurl
Lay there deep and crisp
Winds make them dance and swirl

Quietly summer slips away
Replaced by days rich and golden
This is the gift of nature
For which we are beholden

Arms outstretched
Stripped of all their glory
The trees wait silently
To begin again their story
