As autumn flings her velvet robe

Each meadow upturns its glossed brew.

And in between, the leaves evoke

The pallete's tints of night’s debut;

When amber tendrils, mauve on oak

Parade their splendor in full view,

Then back again through red-flushed sky

Where Northern lights glow like magi

Francine Roberts' Autumn Colors
