Autumn is Here





Autumn is here; its leaf-song tear
Will soon adorn the meadowland
As Time employs double-edge joys
Of seasons scattered on the sand

Autumn is here; earth’s belvedere
Unveils rare canvasses of sod
As we behold, fold over fold
The awesome handiwork of God

Autumn is here; its hemisphere
A scarlet, bronze and umber tent
On frosted morn; the heart is torn
Twixt pleasure and farewell’s lament

Autumn is here; how swift a year
Is caught up in Time's tender rush
We turn our gaze to nature’s blaze
And praise the One who holds the brush
