How quickly we bid adieu to summer days
and usher in the Autumn season.
Anticipating change in wonderous ways
and it will come, we argue not, nor ask the reason.
We watch for leaves to burnish, dry and fall
and harvest moon to glow in western sky.
Lifting eyes to geese who call
their parting honks to passers-by.
Thanksgiving Day will gather friends and kin
with roasted turkey, sweetened yams and pumpkin pie.
So embrace with joy, let Autumn days begin
and expect rich blessings from our God on high.
