Toffee Colored Leaves





Fall paints the world in toffee-colored leaves
A pumpkin's candled grin will always please
Lazy river cruises tinged in frames of ease
Add tapestries of color for an esthetic weave






A gentle splattering of amber, knitting changes for all
Scarecrows in pilgrim hats share scenes of fall
Where haystacks are hiding behind the garden wall
Fiddle playing farmers at a Country Music Hall







Somewhere in the distance, before closing of day
The smell of burning leaves, aromatic bouquet
Marshmallows roasting, a bale of fresh hay
A cruise along the river paints a fall get-a-way







While sipping hot cider, hot chocolate or hot tea
Or cruising on a river boat where images are free
There's nothing quite like it, just peek and you'll see
The paintings of God, abounding land and sea








Le caramel a coloré des feuilles
