A falling Leaf

A falling leaf, etched in gold
     Followed me this morning
And as it floated to the earth,
     All the while adorning
I remembered many reasons
     Of why I love the fall
It’s the tapestry of color
     That I dote on most of all

With hues approaching scarlet
     Golden ochre by its side
A resplendent matrimony
     Will once again preside

So with each leaf of umber
     Carried by a rustling breeze
I relish nature’s beauty
      In its seasonal reprise
