Autumn is a lovely time of year
Cooler days are finally here.
Flora’s summer colors still hang on,
Are enriched by fall attire most plants don.
As forests get ready to shed their coverings
I gleefully pull on woolen leggings.
Thick sweaters are my favorite things to wear,
Help the coming frigid months to bear.
I take a bow to our sun-lounging summer guests
Wish them Godspeed on their future quests.
And a safe return when equinox next rolls round
Until then may they—and may we all—stay safe and sound.
