Autumn Days

Written by: Nick Ruff

September wind is blowing cold,
And Summer warmth is giving way;
Soon Nature’s green will turn to gold,
Her Autumn leaves all set aflame

I pray I can escape once more
Into her woods and steal away – 
To hold her vivid beauty bound
If only for a moment’s sake;

So when December sends her first
Of downy flakes upon the earth,
My heart won’t shiver at her ways,
For I’ll remember Autumn days.
