Splashes of crimson and yellow gold
Scattered on sun-dappled green!
Intensely fragrant harvest hews
Autumn makes the scene.
Faded petals from nature’s bouquet,
Dance with falling leaves.
Invigorating scents carried along
On autumns gentle breeze!
Naked trees will soon arrange
Their patchwork quilts on the ground,
Then as they sway in the rising wind,
There won’t be a single sound!
Shadows of autumn evenings,
Have shortened up the days,
And soon the delightful autumn air,
To winter’s chill will give way!
