Autumn Sonnet

October Fall Colors

As summer ends with its furious searing

Autumn begins with a cool taste of refreshing

Autumn October Colors

As autumn progresses with age

Trees begin a gradual change from green foliage

Autumn October Colors

Leaves change to match the nature’s beginning slumbers

Colors like a kaleidoscope decorate the towering timbers

Autumn October Colors

Autumn winds shake the trees

Reluctantly the trees release their leaves

Poplar Leaves Among the Crabapple

As they flutter down to the welcoming ground

They gracefully cover the receiving mound

Autumn Assorted Foliage

As they lie there in the sun and bathe in the moon

The leaves wither way too soon

Autumn Tree House

Leaf bags are filled to the brim

Fallen leaves leave a barren limb

Autumn Timbers
