An Autumn Breeze

An Autumn Breeze


Sun’s light staining leaves of long past days

golden as agriculture’s fresh sweet maize

And wondrous new things take place

Old voices that keep us in disgrace


Winter, summer, spring time too

Make our memories golden and true

Yet as old leaves get raked away

We share a memory of a fresh autumn day


The world turns a different shade

As crunching leaves from the trees cascade

and Mother Nature’s sweet gifts delight

All living things before winter’s bite


Slowly fall time days drift lazily by

as we laugh and play under a golden sky

Yet before we move towards an icy blight

Kiss the autumn days a sweet good night
