September has come, days cooling down
We often feel a breeze now, wafting through town.
Sunlight gets weaker and the trees lose their leaves
We start wearing boots and our T-Shirts get sleeves.
Grass turns brown and often it rains
Autumn cools the blood in our veins.
Nature changes colors, green turns into red
Yellow, brown and orange are the colors ahead.
Soon enough towards end of the summer
We start staying inside, what a bummer!
The green grass replaced by pumpkin patches
Candles and lamps are lit up with matches.
Halloween draws nearer, is just ahead of us.
We search for hoods, caps and gloves no reason for fuss.
As fun this season gets, the heat is amiss
To keep us warm very often, is only a kiss.
And on one day, before we’re even aware,
Towards the end of the year, we’re sure getting there.
Families prepare, laugh and steer
To the Thanksgiving feast, how quick it was here!
