The Fall is Here

The long days of summer
are slowly coming to an end
minute by minute
the days grow shorter
and the nights longer
the warmth of the summer sun wanes
replaced by icy winds
sending chills across everything it touches
verdant leaves are starting to fade
hues of red and yellow taking its place
transforming the landscape
into a beauty unsurpassed
creating a vision of an enchanted land
in the end these leaves will fall
shaken out by the wintery winds
while their trees prepare for a long sleep
naked, and vulnerable
against the fury of Jack Frost
