Lovely is the Autumn
By Amanda Downey
So lovely is the Autumn color gold.
The changing of leaves never gets old.
Oh, the brown, golden, orange and red
Remind us how beautiful life can be, even as it comes to an end.
With each falling leaf, a story is told
Of a year lived, of memories made.
In Autumn’s embrace we find solace and shade.
As nature transforms, so do we.
Shedding old layers, setting ourselves free.
The crispness in the air, the crunch beneath our feet,
Stepping forward into a season so sweet.
And as the days get shorter and nights grow long,
We find warmth in our hearts, a melody in song.
Autumn reminds us life is constant change,
But also of radiance that will always remain.
Embrace the golden hues of this season,
Find joy in simple moments and reason.
For the Autumn colors, so lovely and bold,
Remind us beauty exists, even as we grow old.
