Autumn Left Us…

The crescent moon shows his twinkle
As the trees shiver in moonlight
Ground below dry hear the crinkle
Quiet valley endures her plight

Days ago, the foliage was bright
As golden leaves trimmed in deep red
Brings to one a beautiful site
Not thinking the leaves are now dead

Autumn left us alone and bare
With promise of new birth again
After springs flowers bloom with flair
Fields will flourish with their new grain

Each season has its own rebirth
Creatures wake to a brand new dawn
Bumblebee’s work colors the earth
Welcomes birth of a new born fawn
