Autumn in the Country

Autumn chill is in the air,
Golden leaves are everywhere.

Apple trees with bright-red fruit,
Scarecrow has a brand-new suit.

Fields of pumplins, orange and green,
Children everywhere thinking Halloween.

Haystacks standing staight and tall,
Waiting for the Harvest Ball.

Picking berries, making jam,
Baking pies, baking ham.

Busy days full of cheer,
Oh, how I love this time of year!

~Patricia Wyatt, Ventura, California~
