Sensual autumn

The honeyed leaves are sweetness for the eyes
A merest scent of magic in the air
We listen to the breeze’s loving sighs
And feel the silken mist that’s everywhere

The gentle thud of apples as they fall
The taste they bring that’s far beyond belief
A cooling breeze that feels like winter’s call
The crisp brown skeleton of every leaf

Such signs of Autumns are all around
You taste the fruits the harvest gathers in
You sigh to see the trees as they are browned
Until their russet cover’s wearing thin

The Autumn season gives each sense a thrill
So take the time to give each one its fill
