Autumnal Equinox

by daisy
Welcome Autumn in all your splendor
Changing leaves and crisp, cool mornings.
Coaxing us to get outside
And drink in every fresh, deep breath.

Craft fairs and football games
Invite us to venture forth
To begin new endeavors
And share good times.

The harvest table will soon be full
Of favorites old and new.
Yam casserole and baked corn pudding
Sure to please most every palate.

The scent of fall stirs thoughts of youth
Piles of leaves to pounce upon
Hot cider and buggy rides
Relishing time spent with friends.

Autumn, we greet you with open arms
And thank you for your many gifts.
Be sure to take your time and linger
So that we may savor every moment.
