A time to start and a time to end
A time to break and a time to mend.
There’s so much that’s old and less is new
there’s still some warmth but cold it’s too.
Fall is time for plans and range
it’s time to prepare and time to change.
Switch the summer for the winter
that’s the season of the ‘tinter’.
Watch how nature does its share
new colors, new smiles and new clothes to wear!
Instead of pink and blue and green
we’ve got yellow, burgundy and ‘coffee-bean’.
Orange, brown and terracotta red,
leaves are falling, trees will shed.
Pumpkin season is ready to come,
We drink eggnog, warm chocolate and tea with rum.
Flames are dancing in the fireplace,
cold wind is leaving red spots in our face.
Fog is covering the brownish ground
Sharp wind around the house is normal sound.
And still it’s a wonderful homey season
in our house for more than one reason.
The world is enchanted by a special glow,
Just before the world will be covered in powdery snow.
There’s so much more to be said to third time of year
There’s so much to look forward to and nothing to fear.
Not even when ghosts, witches and vampires will mime,
Enjoy Halloween before Christmas time.
