Leaves of Autumn


(For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere)

Falling gently to the ground,

Leaves of Autumn – orange, brown,

Yellow, crimson…Winter nears;

Summer’s sunshine disappears.

  1. Really lovely, Glenn! Here in Canada the transition into Autumn came so quickly. Within just a few days the temperature dropped, leaves started to change colour, and the evening light faded sooner.
