November Nostalgia

The last golden leaves
Fell from the trees
And blew in the breeze.
The colors so bright,
Multi-hued delight.
Autumn took a wrong turn;
Colors we rarely see
In Tennessee –
How the hillsides burn!
New England’s bright edge
Seen in each tree and hedge,
And bronze pumpkin sedge.
Still the colors remain –
A luminous stain
Until the next rain.
As each autumn returns
I know I will yearn
For sights such as these:
Crimson, scarlet reds,
Seen in each tree and hedge –
How it pierces my heart-
God’s glorious art.
‘Til the last golden leaves
Fall from the trees,
And their beauty departs.
