Reasons to celebrate Fall
The Joys of Fall

Large piles of leaves kissed red, orange, and gold,
watching kids jump into them never grows old,
we smile at their fun as we retrieve the rakes,
with crisp Fall winds growing significantly bold.

The many joys of autumn are ours to take,
enjoying the scents of pumpkin breads baked,
along with the taste of hot apple cider we drink,
photos for cherished memories our cameras make.

Watching a bonfire, there comes a pause to think,
a melancholy at how quickly time seems to shrink,
knowing that Fall is simply a part of the cycle of life,
to be quickly followed by winter, within an eye’s blink
