Fall’s fire is written on every deciduous tree,
A chorus of harmony displayed for all to see.
The first frost paints lace on the window pane,
Patterns and designs are never quite the same,
The smell of burning wood floats in the chilled air,
Signs that everything’s in place for a great love affair.
Come together and cuddle close by the roaring fire,
Sipping at hot cocoa, looking at your heart’s desire.
It’s time to settle down with that special someone,
Beachboys and parties of the summer are all done.
The spark burns brightly on this lovely autumn day,
Hoping this new simmering love beyond fall, will stay.
