God's awesome artistry behold,
Trees ablaze with leaves red and gold,
Autumn's fiery colors bold,
Beauty untold, beauty untold.
Summer's heat slowly fades away,
As Autumn's coolness makes its way.
A welcome change I have to say,
Is a fall day, is a fall day.
Autumn's beauty won't last for long,
Colors will fade with Winter's song.
Dull and gray 'til Spring comes along,
With new life's throng, with new life's throng.
