Aumumn's Glow by Marilyn Lott

There is something about autumn
That brings out such earthiness
Gold leaves adorn bushes and trees
Like an artist with a brilliant brush
Once the leaves dry on the trees
Then the wind begins to blow
It's a special time of year for me
Because I love autumn so
The cold dry air it seems
Prepare the leaves to fall
Mother Nature's special time
Yes, it's the best of all
What a dazzling way to end
The year as winter nears
The way that leaves let loose
and dropp like nature's tears
Oh yes, I love those golden days
Dreamy with autumn's glow
It makes me smile because I do
Love the season of autumn so!
