Autumn Colors


Autumn fair, I envision you shaded in nutmeg and golden maize;
Under cerulean October sky, swirling wonders hold my gaze.
Terracotta soothes and sienna burns, I stroll bark and bramble spellbound;
Until the tree limbs cradle me close, winds wait in whispers without a sound.
Majestic moments capture my heart, memories dance then fall with grace.
Never shall your splendor pass; autumn fair I'll never forget your face.

    Rhonda, so lovely! I hope to see this top the charts. So much do I love about this, nutmeg (perfect) maize (nice choice) soothes/burns (Oh, yeah, that's what I'm talking about). Sent you mail. Your prayers seemed to have helped. Much better day. Hugs and more hugs, Cyndi
