September Nonet Contest

Chill of fall is in the air as summer's greens retreat to keep, until again she will joyously repeat her shades of verdant hues among the leaves of elated trees that sing in Sun. Yet every season bestows its joy as autumn guilds the leaves in gold, in rust and crimson too, in majesty death beholds. A harvest of the seeds we have sown we reap in divine gifts. 8-24-19 ~First Place~
