The radiant colors of fall are fleeting
They only last a few weeks
Until the last leaf plummets to the ground
And days start to turn bleak

Winter is reminding us it will soon be here
The snow will start to pour
The wintry chill will sink in
And freeze us to the core

But for a few short weeks of autumn
The colors amaze and cheer
And remind us to have some hope
For they will return again next year

Red, yellow, brown, orange
Every shade imaginable
Autumn splendor
In all of its glory
