The Joy of Autumn

Summer green bows and yields
to autumn hues of pastel
cool breeze slowing life

Leaves melt to red
ochre and orange, then drop
Sun lowers her orbit

Skin feels the growing chill
ice wind stings eyes
As logs crackle on open fire

Warm in the cave
harsh elements banned
Sipping mulled wine from crystal glass.

The joy of autumn!
