What I Love


 Can’t paint a charming portrait
Or sing a lilting song
But I can tell you what I love
If you’d like to tag along.
I love a cool crisp morning
When autumn comes around
The twinkling of an early frost
And leaves upon the ground.
An azure sky excites my senses,
A pumpkin wet with dew
A sunny, cloudless afternoon
A field of cornstalks, too.
When mountains are emblazoned
With colors warm and bright
Their splendor can’t be hidden
Even from the night.

As autumn leaves are falling
Each one a different shade
Who wouldn’t marvel at the sight
Our wondrous God has made?
It emerges early in October
This awe-inspiring view
I love it, oh, so very much
I hope you love it, too!

     Some of you already know the poem from Sweet Whispers of Youth, but I don't see any reason not to use it again since it's October again!
