Summer rain making way
once again for fall colors
raining down on crisp ground
golden brown, vibrant and pure.

Sending us on the road
be prepared, be secure
knowing all is full and ready
for winter white that follows
These lovely fall colors.

Summer rain, fall colors
blend into stark winter
Be prepared, be right
enjoy the changing, knowing
this is the seasons of life.

Spring soon, the brightness
the freshness bringing new life
Just wait for only
a few dark, dark nights.
