Autumnal Marvel

Rustling blades of ruby float on my front lawn,
        gazebo flooded with gold and chartreuse leaves-
I sit at my bay window, in awe I fawn, 
        Autumn's pure beauty comforts and relieves.
So much more than summertime perceives.

        For hope is found in Autumn’s crimson tide,
the summer has ended with no time to spare-
        Inviting mother nature as our precious guide,
no other season created could compare.
        I bow my head and say a grateful prayer.

Saffron skies float over the rising sun, 
        the east is full of grand medallion lights-
My daughter jumping in the leaves for fun, 
        then roasting marshmallows on chilly nights.
Autumnal marvel bestows splendid sights.
