To Autumn:

 

The scent of cinnamon steaming off my latte
I stare out the window at the various shades of leaves
People coming and going from this cafe
This is my favorite time of year but no one believes

 

How could you not love the burgundy sweaters
And pumpkins on the streets
No time could be better
Or have more yummy treats

 

The auburn sunsets
And birch trees
The way the winds perform a duet
With each individual breeze

 

Squirrels on the branches of oak
Their coats of fawn
Blending with the chimney smoke
All of this makes me feel drawn

 

To the baked goods with spice
And the cool moonlit nights
I would do it all twice
To experience these sights

 

But autumn will come and go
From summer’s blazing heat
To winter’s platinum snow
Yet no season will make me feel as complete
