As My World Turns


Welcome Fall


I welcome you Fall
With your bounty of promises
for cooler breezes
And rich, golden hues

Crisp morning air
And steaming coffee cups

The lingering scent
Of burning leaves

My oldest yet softest sweater
New warm socks
for old boots

The smell of cinnamon
is now in fashion

Pumpkins waiting for Thanksgiving
Their color orange
Sprinkles the neighborhood

Dogs barking at fallen leaves
The sound of crunching under my feet

Mama’s call their kids indoors
Sunset is early
Summer nights no more

Hot soup
Simmering on the stove
Welcomes everyone to sit
around the table more

Apple season is in full swing
Can’t stop at just pie
There’s too many to eat

Cuddle up cozy
in your favorite chair
Read the book that’s been waiting
patiently all year

Knit a new scarf
Winter is near
Soon there will be snow
Trees are all bare

Goodbye Fall
Glad you were here
It was good to see you again

Wish you could stay longer
Maybe next year
