The weather is beginning to change
hot summer days will soon disappear
painted leaves will soon dazzle our eyes
Beautiful autumn, I'm glad you're near!

Colorful autumn is a special time
to walk nature trails enjoying the sites
when the sun sinks in the western sky
Families can sit watching firefly lights.

When nights are chilly fireplace fires
calms our nerves in some magical way
maybe autumn is the season of the year
Preparing us for coming cold winter days?
