The air is cooling
skies turning gray.
Soon Arctic winds will blow
for winter is on the way.
Trees are turning colors
putting on their most brilliant display.
But the leaves will lose their color soon
die and blow away
leaving only browns and dull grays.
The land is just sleeping
till spring chases the cold away.
Bringing on new life
like waking to a beautiful day.
