There is so much that autumn brings—

Loud, honking geese on rapid wings,

A busy gray squirrel storing nuts,

The turkey gobbler’s preens and struts.

The leaves have turned a golden brown

As they begin to tumble down.

The yellow school bus leaves the lane;

Frost etches on each windowpane.

No matter where I look or stand,

I see anew God’s wondrous land!
