Patchy clouds of fog
Appear here and there,
A gusty wind of Autumn
Scent in the air.
Mist settled on the lake
Obscuring views of nature,
While the morning sun
Makes strides to reach the earth
Trees shed leaves
Of orange and brown
Scattered along the path.

Birds begin to hush their summer songs
Being weary, flying from tree to tree
Seeing cozy shelter
As the trees stand bare.

School kids walk in a rush,
Along the path
Of yellow and red leaves
The crunching sounds
Beneath their feet
Bring joy and cheer.

A calm breeze invites
The Autumn promise
Embracing with a gentle caress
To keep us warm
Before seasons to come.
