Shades of Autumn
My Love Letter to Autumn
Season of change, season of my delight
Evening walks down lanes of trees with their turning brown leaves
Pumpkins, squashes, golden fields of corn; a bountiful harvest all adore
The crisp chill in the air, the time for woodland creatures to prepare
Even the sky remains undecided between rain or shine
Mushrooms thrive on decaying stumps, worms emerge from damp earth
Behold rolling woodland hills of red and orange
Embraced by my favorite sweater, the shades of Autumn
Roaming forest trails to gather chestnuts and acorns
Oh how could I forget the season of spooks and treats
Childhood hours of evading monsters through hide and seek
Time steals away the years but not my memories
Of all those days spent waiting for...
Blazing campfires, Mother's frightening stories, messy smores
Enthralling horror movies all month long
Reaching into pumpkins to carve and saw
Now is the season of coming together
Of spending whole afternoons with Mother, baking bread and pies without care
Velcro gloves of mine moving firewood with Father for Winter's rise
Enticing warm scents of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom
Mornings full of holiday cooking and our favorite songs
Burning our favorite candles of spice and wood
Embers in the hearth flared as we laughed with great mirth
Remembering those fond Autumns past, oh how I wish they could last
