Autumn Blessings

Fall is my all time favorite season and it was the inspiration of my first poem. I have attached the poem below for you guys to read. It is a short and simple poem, but it is very dear to me being my first one. Enjoy!

Autumn Blessings
The Blessings of Autumn are all around us,
Just look at the beautiful colors of rust.
Reds, Greens, and Yellows, too;
Surely to wash away those lingering blues.

Smiling Scarecrows & Leaves everywhere,
Pumpkins and Gourds made by God with such care.
Feel the crispness in the cool fall breeze,
Watch God’s wonder in the turning of the trees.

Long walks with lovers stealing a kiss,
But as they do remember this…
All of these things are just a small few,
Of the wonderful blessings God shines upon you.

“Autumn Blessings to You & Yours”

I wish we had more 'seasons' here in South Texas. The leaves don't turn to brilliant, vibrant colors. They just turn BROWN and then fall to the ground. =0)

Very nice! I miss the fall colors of "back home" because we sure don't see them here in South Texas!
