Summer gives way to September,
Warmer summer-like days diminish.
Cooler mornings and evenings coincide.
Sunshine visits cut short by day’s end.
Sounds of children’s chatter at bus stops
Schools resume scheduled classes.
All a year older and a grade advanced.
Flowers’ fall wither appears overnight.
Except the Mums colorful brightness.
Trees begin to drop their brown leaves.
We prepare fall wardrobe changes.
Animals insulate their dens and nests
September heralds in autumn changes.
Harvest-time begins in dedicated display.
Leaves prepare their colorful ensemble
Colors soon display reds and yellows.
Darkness sooner with sunrise later.
The waning moon rules extended night.
