Autumn's Breath

soft voices in the woods 
wings whisper through the leaves 
even though some hope is gone 
autumn displays the last of summer’s glory 
glowing flames golden and orange 
moving towards a winter dawn 
precious animals scurry to hoard 
against the long chills to come 
leaves crinkled, wrinkled and dry 
flutter to taunt the birds 
cool night air boasts 
with magnificent natural rewards 
showing prisms of color and light 
flecks of tanned and red images 
painting the tree tops 
autumn’s breath sighing through 
a great and mighty fall
