Autumn Breeze

Autumn Breeze

God made colors, and then applied them
Greens and golds, amber and maroon
Cascading leaves create empty limbs
Unlike the greens of June

Lawns are gardens of crimson and gold
Evergreens laden with needles and cones
Colors are brilliant and equally bold
Holly bushes become berry thrones.

An orange sun sets in purple skies,
Casting shadows from the trees
The immense Harvest Moon begins to rise
As Summer yields to the Autumn breeze.

Circa 2000


  1. very nice!!! I can almost see this as even a story book with kids and lots of pictures of colorful leaves :)


  2. I agree... Some of the children's books we read to the kids were like this with pictures like Betty describes, and they loved them!


Have musings of your own? Comments are welcome...
