The Inner Peace of Autumn

Shorter days calm our hearths and the bees.

There goes a caressing autumn breeze.

Shorter days calm our hearths and the bees.

The miracle of brighter red hues

When the sky has the cloudy blues.

The contrast of reddish-brown leaves

To the dark grey clay under our heals.

Green overgrown façades turning red –

What placating places to go to bed.

Spring and summer blossoms

Give the palette of thousands of shades,

While autumn’s tints are mellow –

The sisters of orange, red and yellow.

The stern defiance of the river

Despite the changes even to quiver.

There goes a caressing autumn breeze.

Shorter days calm our hearths and the bees.

 

Take care,
