Take out the scarf, put on the hat
We’re going into fall
The seasons change and that is that
It’s time for gloves and shawl.
The leaves have changed, they all fall down
To the frosty ground
From yellow, red and dusty brown
And they don’t make any sound.
The grass is damp, the air is cool
fog crawls up in sight.
We’re wearing knitted warming wool
Over are short sleeves and light.
The darkness creeps quite early now
into every day
we expect frost and cool and vow
we’ll move in warmer lands to stay.
Winter walks into our lands
With big expansive strides
the cold bites softly our hands
when snow covers, protects and hides.
These are the last of autumn’s days
Enjoy the warming sun
Soon, nature freezes, and it stays
Until new buds in spring bring joy and fun.
