Hello Autumn My Dear Friend
Hello autumn my dear friend.
You look beautiful today.
I love the colors you are wearing,
even though they'll quickly fade.
Winter's chill will follow after,
but right now you captivate.
Helping me to long remember
through each storm to simply wait.
For even under snow and ice,
when life is miserable and cold,
lies a seed that you have planted
from these days I now behold.
And when the rays of warmth shine down,
this seed new life will bring.
And I can see your wondrous beauty
in the midst of early spring.
For in life as in the earth
if we but gaze our eyes around.
Do we see a hopeless winter
or the seed of hope beneath the ground?
