~ Autumn Kaleidoscope ~

Fluffy clouds, marshmallow-white
Pasted on an autumn sky
Blue, so blue -- the sun so bright
Into that blue, I long to fly

Kaleidoscopic trees all 'round
Leaves of gold and green and red
Underfoot, there on the ground
Crunchy feel of brown leaves, dead

Orange pumpkins in the field
Crookneck squash -- so smooth, so yellow
Concord grapes, the vine did yield
Fragrance, taste -- so sweet, so mellow

Scarecrows 'tween the rows of corn
Brandishing their arms of straw
Patches on their shirtsleeves, torn
Overhead the crows do caw

Harvest time means harvest moons
Big and bold . . . red-yellow pies
Not the kind that Mother spoons
Into a pie shell, sweet surprise

Sweet potato, pumpkin too
So rich, so good, so tasty
Summer . . . she has not a clue
Of autumn's dance, now hasty

Baskets full of apples, red
Sit just inside the kitchen door
Another crop for pies and bread
Mmmm, apple butter -- I want more

The heat holds on, as summer clings
Though autumn nights are crisp and cool
The mockingbird, now, seldom sings
When yellow school bus heads for school

It's all a dance, the sweet romance
The changing of the seasons
I don't believe it's all by chance
I know God has His reasons

Faerie's Heart Songs
T.R. Cardinet 2010

As summer draws to a close and
autumn winds begin to blow, find
joy in the small-but-wondrous
miracles that are all around you.
