'Ode To Autumn' - Poem by Stanley Lester Fuller

The days grow shorter, a cooler wind blows.
Leaves mingle with raindrops, in colors so bold.
Short sleeves become sweaters, and frost becomes foe
as it embraces our windows, in a milky lace glow.

A ruckus of noise, anticipation fills the air
as birds make their plans to vacation elsewhere.
While squirrels and chipmunks busily prepare,
hoarding their stores, as if none were to spare.

Awakening from slumber, in the darkness of night.
The moon reveals wonders, obscured by daylight.
Like crystalline dewdrops, on pumpkins so bright
and long narrow shadows, cast by moonlight.

The crackling of firewood, some comfort it makes
while bundled inside, our refuge we take.
As autumn gives way, for winter to wake.
