The Autumn Of Life - Poem by Carolyn Fantz

Leaves of gold in autumn fire
Orange, reds cascade desire
to run and jump and cover with glee
the little child inside of me.
The mounds and mounds colorful shape
so light and free in autumn's wake
Summer's end brings harvest near.
What an incredible - good and happy year-
Bring on the leaves, the autumn shapes!
excitement looms in summer's wake
The sun cascades, the colors glow
Leaves' final hurrah, they just let go!
As leaves of color fill the air
we're free again with nary a care
let go -let God. let life be Free.
As Jesus said, Children come to Me
The tree of life is God Divine
the leaves of gold His children fine
As children age, they just let go
With Beautiful color to Heaven they go.
