We see trees on mountains reaching for the sky
As their leaves full of beautiful colors fall as if waving goodbye.
Water running down the cooling mountain streams
Showing a morning hint of fog matching the hot cocoa steam.
The gathering of birds getting ready for an annual flight
Knowing coolness in the air returns as the sun disappears early in the night.
We know that through each year seasons come and go
That what once was summer rain will soon land as a blanket of winter snow.
Yet we find time to gather pumpkins and eat turkey in feast to one and all.
Preparing for winter through a colorful and grateful period called fall.
