Autum Everywhere By: Elsie Abel

Newly robed the forest proudly stand In soft shades, of bright and bold And the purple mountains beyond the plains Loo are flecked with Red and Gold. Where the oak trees brown nut ladden stand Acorns scattered everywhere.

Where the Birchwoods proudly stand beside The Maples robed in Flame, Where the pine tree stands in its robe of green Is content to wear the same. Where every stream its mirror spreads There reflects to leaning trees The silent float of colored boats Their fallen Autumn leaves.

And oh! the rich sweet scented air Where the ladden friet trees stand Where the fruited grapevine bending low Is plucked by a fair maiden's hand The fruit cellar is filled to overflow Barns abundently with feed How grateful we should be to Him Who knows our every need.

And when the soft dark velvet night Spreads its grment all around And like a massive king it wears A diamond studded crown. A lone owl breaks the silent night Sweet contentment fills the air. And when the harvest moon appears It spells Autum every where.
