The Reds, Yellows, Oranges and Browns of Autumn
Russet sunset overpowering coolness of the day
Showing herself in reds and yellows,
Streaking through October’s pumpkin patches
Straw scarecrows decorating autumn porches
With their stationary smiles and their googly eyes
Staring from fall displays of gourds and Indian corn
Banana bread and pumpkin bread smellsWafting from the kitchen of the ones who care
About russet sunsets, the ones who decorate their porches
With the reds, yellows, oranges, and browns of autumnEnhancing her in every way, celebrating the beginning of
Showing their playful sides, in the most melodic ways.
Squirrels with fluffy tails scurrying with walnuts,
Deer crunching through the leaf ground,
Autumn magic smiling her truth.
