Autumn

Soon the beautiful colors of Autumn will soon be upon us.
  A time of harvest, and a slight Winter chill in the air. 
  After all; THERE IS A TIME FOR EVERYTHING, AND A
  SEASON FOR EVERY ACTIVITY UNDER HEAVEN.
  ( ECCLESIASTES 3:1 )

      So today, I would like to share a poem with
  you about one of my favorite seasons!   I hope that you
  will enjoy it!

                        Although I like September,
                        I feel a sadness, too,
                        As the summer days now dwindle
                        To just a precious few.
                        The corner play lot’s empty
                        With a melancholy look;
                        The children have returned to school
                        With pencil, pad and book.
                        Songbirds are flying south again
                        Before the cold winds blow;
                        I marvel how our caring God
                        Tells them it’s time to go.
                        The hills are tinged with red and gold,
                        Etched on Summer’s green
                        And everywhere I look I see
                        A golden harvest scene.
                        A pumpkin in the garden patch
                        Lends a note of cheer,
                        Reminding us God sends bright gifts
                        Whatever time of year.
                        So I will greet September,
                        Put on my brightest shawl,
                        Be thankful for each season sent
                        As Summer turns to Fall.
                                                  Poet, Kay Hoffman

      So, enjoy the last days of Summer while they
  are still with us, because soon the leaves will be starting to fall.
