Fall is in the air again,
Her fragrant breath upon us.
She comes dressed in regal, royal splendor
Such as no season e're did festoon.
Warmth of summer has cooled,
The crispness of Fall is here -
Smokey, damp, musky too.
Oh! The awe of golden-crimson leaves!
They rustle and mingle with velvet green grass;
They contrast sharp and wondrously with clear blue sky.
Such beauty takes breath away,
Yet beckons for to inhale deeply.
Save the pleasant memory!
Tuck it away for a cold, rainy, dismal Winter day.
Fair Fall has slipped in again
On the tails of Sweet Summer.
Enjoy the perfection so as to hold through Winter.
Fair Fall, I bid thee welcome!
