My Friend Autumn

My Friend Autumn …

Last night I shivered,

as the cold winds blew.

It seemed that summer,

was coming to an end much too soon.

Autumn was fast approaching

and even though the season,

was most colorful –

it made me sad saying goodbye to summer days.

When I cuddled up in my blanket,

I fell asleep wondering –

if there’d still be some warm days.

There he came in my dream,

across the fields –

waving to me.

My old friend Autumn,

returning season after season,

he waved and smiled –

in a coat of many colors.

His head crowned with leaves,

approaching he told me,

not to despair,

even though soon the summer would be over –

the fall would bring new pleasures.

Of colored leaves

and crisp cold air,

of delights like orange pumpkins

and the summer harvest.

He took me in a happy dance,

as we spun around,

I looked at the clear blue sky

and the clouds whizzing by.

I knew that it would be alright,

it was time to embrace a new season

and as my friend Autumn,

turned to go,

just before he went over the hill,

he turned to wave

and shouted, “See you in September!”
