Hear the rustling of the leaves

Feel the crisp autumn breeze

The colors in their vast array

Seem to change every day

Summer’s now in the past

Winter’s cold is coming fast

Enjoy the moment now at hand

Autumn’s the time before winter’s rest

Hibernating animals build their nest

The time when nature has slowed her pace

Time to show off a colorful face

She will rest until the spring

And then wake up to begin again
