Autumn Flowers

autumn flower

As with each season

we’ll soon bid farewell to the summer

as autumn comes blowing in

with gray days and rain

but this season to delight us

brings lots of colors

the summer flowers

will wither and die

but in their place

autumn flowers will delight our eyes

like asters, chrysanthemums

and lovely persimmons

they are so nice to look at

autumn flowers

look so very bright

they color the landscape

as the cold winds begin to blow

such pleasure they give to us

pretty chrysanthemums

with leaves of yellow, brown, and red

swirling about

a carpet of leaves

now beneath my feet

and in many a garden

that I see

autumn flowers

bringing smiles

now that the summer is gone
