Chilly lady ‘Autumn’

Autumn shows her golden locks

with beauty and with pride

She drapes the trees

and cools the eves

till Winter does arrive


Always full of bluster

leaving Summer in the past

She has us donning sweaters

to avert the cold she cast


This lady puts on quite a show

before the Winter White

yellow, reds and oranges

these colors,  they delight


Now Winter, he’s a fierce one

and starts pushing her around

so she strips the trees

of all their leaves

and whisks them out of town    Hansi Riley
