As Autumn Wakes

by mzanemcclellan

As autumn wakes, the trees display
a collage of leaves on bright sunny days.
Crimsons and gold to catch the eye,
peak as the equinox draws nigh,
senescence will surely hold sway.

To carpet woods, as squirrels foray,
with acorns they will store away.
To the south the feathered fly
as autumn wakes.

Orchard branches bend down to say,
the time for harvest upon us lays.
Give thanks to that, on which we rely,
the succulent bounty from on high.
Blessed gifts are Mother Nature’s way
as autumn wakes.
