FALL

Colors change and so do moods
when trees lose hue
and birds subdue
their piercing songs.
Clouds protect the crowds below
against the sun
that naps above
but still peeks through.
Trees lose leaves that cover lawns
all over town
and bring great joy
to anxious feet.
Mockingbirds appear again
and build their nests
right under roofs
leave them alone!
Monarchs make their final rounds
seeking milkweed
that’s now nowhere
and on they fly.
All the colors that trees lose
every ev’ning
the skies collect
give Earth new life.
