I love this time of year.

What’s not to love about this time of year?
The heat is gone since summer’s slipped away.
Accoutrements of Halloween appear;
on porches, pumpkins make a fine display.

A trinket Jack-O’-Lantern face of joy;
despite the sunken eyes, he seems upbeat.
Such lift for every adult, girl and boy;
perhaps he is the face of trick-or-treat.

The days get short and nights provide a chill;
abundant dew in morning coats the lawn.
Despite the changes, I perceive a thrill,
because of what this time of year does spawn.

  A grinning pumpkin seems to say it all;
  with joy and laughter, I embrace the fall.
