Inspired by a painting by my mother. The gentleman who bought it politely declined all of her subsequent attempts to buy it back. When his end was near, he gave the painting to me.

Autumn Sheaves, Autumn Leaves
Borne upon the Autumn breeze
Colors fall with Autumn sounds
Breeze blows colors all around
Howling loud at Harvest Moon
Autumn falls away too soon

Autumn odors all around
Leaves ablaze with Autumn sound
Wood smoke borne upon the breeze
Rustling sounds from Autumn trees
Geese a’ winging, Harvest Moon
Cruel Winter comes too soon

Thank the Lord for Autumn time
Thank you Lord for all that’s mine
Thank the Lord for everything
Air borne smoke, the geese on wing
Autumn falls away too soon
Howling loud at Harvest Moon

Colorful imagery with a peaceful feel. Makes me want to go fishing on a calm lake. I bet the painting is beautiful.
