Colors of Autumn

The colors of autumn
many the hues
of earth's raiment
in splendor of attainment
does she rest
having given us the best
of everything

Her russets rise to tame
the fiery mien
of summer skies
and golden flames upon the trees
burn brighter with the breeze
as in a blaze of glory
the torch is passed
in this endless story
of all life
