AUTUMN COLORS 2

Written by: olusegun Arowolo

Autumn colors are produced by transformation of pigments
Undetectable by the naked eyes;this color initially
Transforms green to yellow and orange,then red complements
Under bright sunny days,and cool nights following partially
Many trees display their brightest colors during the day,
New leaves are protected from the harmful effects of light,
Chlorophyll absorbs blue light before reflecting the ray,
On the leaves which absorb blue-green and make it bright,
Leaf peepers observe this foliage display with serious keen,
Often children born during this Fall are said to live longer,
Red leaves on apples which attract birds and insects are seen,
Shedding of leaves before snowfalls makes trees stronger.
