Beautiful Tree Leaves Of Fall
Golden leaves are falling,
from past summer's shaded trees,
Bringing us an annual message,
that color will be to see,
On every mountain and hillside,
color will be bursting forth,
All because of nature's hidden,
and mysterious life course!
Solid colors will soon be blended,
brighter than ever before,
They'll please the eyes that see them,
the rich and the poor,
On the ground they'll be a protection,
to winter's dark cold,
Like many other things, they live,
for a time to become old!
The Grand Master of all,
put color ingredients in the leaves,
Creating much beauty in seeing,
and a pleasure to believe!!!
Just look at the perfection,
in the many colorful blends,
That duplicate the colors,
found in the rainbow end to end!
Go ahead and fall, golden leaves,
meet your annual destiny!
Don't fret how the trees will look,
empty yet so stately,
They'll say, "Thank you leaves,
for being a vital part of me.
Thank You Lord, for creating us,
our beauty we owe to Thee!!!
