Leaves of Rust

Leaves of rust do bounce within the brisk wind As trees release them from whence they ascend The frigid air blows down the lane of leaves Orange charms lay about where we all believe The sun sits low barely over the drive Straw blends with the grass as fall comes alive The crispness of each day flaunts us with pride Colors of autumn describes the outside Trees are nearing their midnight life cycle Almost bare with few leaves to recycle Crops are near the height of sowing prowess Yellow stalks surround the farmhouse fortress The season does explain the cool weather It’s the most beautiful time of the year

    You wrote of this season with love Russell and your last line confirms that. This is a beauty my friend. Hope you had a good weekend. "my friend died in an accident yesterday morning, so it is still fresh but I know that he is in a better place and that is my comfort" thank you for always encouraging me :)
