At night a mighty magician
has lent color to the trees
He's made a forest pallet
before the Winter's freeze.
He's changed the leafy forest
into brilliant blazing hues
and stilled the land at evening
with the hush of Autumn's clues.
Now numbered are the Summer's days;
now hushed are Summer winds;
now it's still within the Forest
as Autumn's chill begins.
Now timid forest creatures
busily gather stores
now the Oak Tree sheds it Acorns
from the branches they adorned.
It's harvest time again
and bales of hay abound
Pumpkins lend their color
wherever they are found.
It's a time of seasonal magic
with Fall stores and the Harvest Fair
It's a time when Autumn's magic
lends enchantment to the air!
| I like autum..but my favorit season is spring....|
but this poem makes me wish that winter would never come.....i like fall better!

i live in the woods, pretty much all oaks...and there are several right over my house...the roof is constantly getting barraged with acorns the last two weeks...sounds like i am getting attacked by soldiers running around up there...
