Autumn treads in wearing silk slippers
made of emerald green and gold
King of all seasons this,
as a rich tapestry unfolds
in a wealth of brilliant jeweled colors
sparkling in the sun on rolling hills.
Majestic noble trees are now dressed
in a lush display of finery, their best
with crowning touches of nature’s palette
sunbaked orange, terra cotta, and marigold.
Feasting our eyes on a plump harvest moon
we get drunk on its sparkling wine
and bask in the royal gilded light
savoring fall evenings fresh and cool
for soon the ice princess will arrive.
