Autumn Abundance Written by me
Coolness, crispness and colours galore
Autumn soon once again you will arrive at our door
The Hues, new shoes, school schedules appear once again
Before me all accents of the most autumn kind
Yes we are leaving our summer behind
Crickets casanova, birds spell out a V in flight
Chinese lanterns in our gardens, wind chimes more echoes abound
Birds soon fly south, and oh the taste in my mouth
of our glorious Thanksgiving feasts, a bountiful harvest
Pumpkins, ghourds and Halloween soon
and our Canadian Thanksgiving with pumpkin pie and the ice cream spoon
I'll embrace you autumn and again in silent prayer will say.........
Thank you God for our beatuiful seasons.......
Thank you God for our reasons to embrace love and joy
and one another.
