Autumn’s Blessings

Clouds lying low in the sky,

The smell of warm apple pie,

Leaves of orange, red, and gold,

Such a lovely sight to behold!

Picking the perfect pumpkin,

Races through leaves–who will win?

Shorter days, longer nights,

Rainbow foliage brings delights!

A chill in the air,

But the kids don’t care

As they ramble and play

Day after day.

Mother Earth is wearing

Her colorful gown while preparing

For a long winter’s sleep

In the snow deep.

These and many more,

The blessings autumn has in store.
