Hazy Shade of Autumn

Trees are bare, all the leaves are down,
frigid air has arrived in town,
and maybe snow came along too.
Fall’s taken on a Winter hue.

Though the calendar still says Fall,
Winter’s feeling looms over all.
As temperatures keep sliding
many creatures go into hiding.

Look out the window, skies are gray;
can’t help but think of a Winter’s day.
Go early to bed, sleep in late,
and fight that wish to hibernate.


  1. Thank you Sarah. I have always said that it’s a good thing life does not have a “fast-forward” button. The temptation to overuse it would be too strong.
