An Autumn Glow

The frost and the cold of an autumn morn
comes swiftly as the lazy sun rises in the east
bringing sunlight to the barren trees

Warmth taken by the chill of the season
one gazes through leafless naked trees of grey
remembering the days of warm summer past

Pulling a scarf tightly around the neck
one feels the brisk daytime air and hurries to
complete chores wanting to rush inside again

The autumn glow lingers bringing those together
for a brief, but friendly chat as they scurry along
preparing for a holiday treat with feast knowing -

their harvest finalized the autumn glow
