Sonnet #4

School started after Labor day each year.

Sixteen calendar days away from Fall.

Leaves turned red, orange, brown and disappeared.

Recess time the children played dodgeball.


Pumpkins ready for Halloween and pies.

Apple butter, hot bread wafted in air.

School homework with evening stars in the sky.

A road trip to the Clearfield County fair.


Bleachers for the Ted Mack amateur hour.

A coat or sweater for football weather.

A time, when landscapes look, feel rather dour.

Always, memories that we treasure.


Autumn paints earth its own unique colors.

Years later a season for true lovers.
