Blazing colors herald fall
No more lazy days for us to recall
Building sandcastles at the beach
Just woolly sweaters
Frosty breath soon to see
While antlered heads rankle
Strong with desire
Chipmunks store, rush about
Then contently sleep beneath
A frosty blanket made of snow
Hills of brilliant color, fading light
See progression as salmon fight
Up the rivers late in to the night
This is fall, blazing colors herald it all.
