Autumn Days

The leaves once green, now set ablaze.

The trees rise from a misty haze.

I love these cool, fresh autumn days!

The landscape painted gold and red.

A bright orange leaf glides past my head.

Though I should work, I’ll play instead.

Perhaps I’ll go off on a hike,

Or find a trail and mountain bike.

Or rake some leaves up if I’d like.

I’ll pile them up so very high,

Until they nearly touch the sky,

Then run through them and watch them fly.

I wish that Fall could always stay,

But Winter is soon on its way.

For now, I’ll just enjoy today!
