Stroll through Autumn Reveries

On a mosaic littered trail

Strewn with colored leaves

Of gold, ochre, russet, and kale

~

Oh, the sights and sounds of Fall

Woodpeckers pecking trees,

Squirrels chirping their call

Birds fluttering in the breeze

~

Perusing the pumpkin patch

Losing ourselves in a corn maze

Buying practically the whole batch

Getting ready for the holidays

~

Witches, ghosts, and ghouls

Racing from door to door,

Cramming their sacks full

Of chocolates and candies galore!

~

Family and friends will be gathered

‘Round the table like a hoard

Butter on bread, to be slathered

Not before giving thanks to our Lord

~

Goodbye Fall nights;

Time to chop down a tree,

String Christmas lights,

And sing fa-la-la off key

~

Oh the wondrous delights

For us to behold

Tis the beautiful sights

To chase away the cold!
