“Colorful Season,” Friend, Oct. 1983, 13

Colorful Season

The autumn woods

Are all aglow

Before the touch

Of winter snow.

Red maple leaves

Are piled high.

They crackle as

Squirrels scamper by.

Glistening oaks,

So big and bold,

Brighten the sky

With leaves of gold.

The swirling wind

Collects her share.

Soon woodland trees

Will all be bare.
