Autumn’s Breeze Autumn drapes her lacey hoarfrost Upon the vanishing vivid leaves of Colored trees, upon the fences and fields Gracing them with her demure beauty. With her breathy chill animals prepare For Jack Frost's stealthy fall arrival. When his first flakes begin to fall... Oh the beauty of it all makes one sigh. Glorious winter twirls her pristine skirt And naked trees welcome her white layers. When snow has covered all the grounds And crystals in ice cycles hang from eave's It is winter who has been crowned Queen. Without her blizzard bringing the freeze No ice skating fun for eager little ones, Or romantic skating on the moonlit lake. There's sleigh rides in the snow as children Show adults how much fun it can be To build a much loved snowman, as they Recall the glory of it all from younger years. 10-28-17 rev. Poem of the Week September 6-11 2016
