Signs of Fall

The magical signs of fall are beginning to show,
Familiar seasonal sights and smells we all know.

Leaves start turning yellow, orange and brown,
Turning loose then gently floating to the ground.

Bales of straw and hay being displayed everywhere,
Corn stalks leaning up to decorate here and there.

The scorching heat of summer is slowly going away,
Autumn is a welcome relief, with each cool crisp day.

Pumpkins lined up in rows like an annual audition,
Waiting to be taken and carved in the fall tradition.

Scarecrows in overalls and straw hats with funny faces,
Propped up in yards or sitting in all kinds of places.

Youngsters talking excitedly about costume wear,
School carnivals, parties and bags of candy to share.

Weekend football games watching the favorite team,
Cheering the touchdown score, fans jump up and scream.

Pots of mums in purple, orange, yellow and white,
Sit on walkways, steps and porches such a pretty site.

Look around and see fall is such a beautiful season,
Cooler temperatures being the number one reason!
