Let autumn's feet be slow to leave
As winter white comes much too soon.
Let colors fill the eyes with warmth,
Enjoy the glow of harvest moon.

The trees in all their splendor stand
Till autumn winds coax leaves to dance.
As colors swirl my heart delights.
With every fall I share romance.

I love the crispness of the air,
The crunch of leaves beneath my feet
In scarlet, gold and pumpkin hues;
Welcome relief from summer's heat.

The rain comes tapping at my pane
With crystal diamond drops that share
The beauty of this season's soul,
A beauty that's beyond compare.

Connie Marcum Wong

Oh thank you Daver. I wasnt sure what you were speaking about until I just read PD's comment. I didnt know this poem was being featured. I don't think I could handle winter in Michigan, especially this winter. Keep warm. Hugs, Connie
