(Argaille A. Di Matteo 10/1/19)
I've opened house windows. Fall Breeze blowing through,
After dancing with yellow, gold and crimson leaves too.
From one room to others, Fall Breeze has her way,
Embracing the Earth and my home on this day!
"What happened to Summer?" I hear the birds call,
While green grass still captures the leaves as they fall.
The birds and the butterflies begin turning South
To set up their Flight Plan. That's what Fall's about.
Mums, apples and pumpkins are out on display
As Fall Breeze comes flowing and blowing their way.
Children and students are all back at school.
They've brought their light jackets, for it's getting cool.
The dew on the hillsides turns slowly to frost.
Fall Breeze blowing everywhere as if She's lost
And looking for Mom Nature, as She twists and turns
Through cities and farmlands. Not long till She learns
That now She's a "Child" and soon she will grow
Into Winter Wind's cold, crystal, bone-chilling blow!
For now though, I stand in the midst of my home,
A'dancing with Fall Breeze before She does roam.
She'll fly and meander o'er God's Bounteous Earth
Before She transforms into Winter Wind's birth.
A'howling and whining, my house windows closed,
She will not be welcome ,nor my warm home exposed.
How great the Creator, Who made you and me,
To fashion Dear Fall Breeze to dance and blow free!
Then let Her evolve into Winter Wind's sting,
And then to transform into Fresh Air of Spring!
