Autumn is a feeling,
and it takes you for a ride.
It puts you in the driver’s seat
and welcomes you inside.
Fall paints as many colors as
a rainbow, bright and bold,
and teaches you to find what’s true
in orange, red, and gold.
It shows you what you’re made of,
and the harvesting feels good.
Hard work is never wasted
when you’ve done the best you could.
To reap a great reward brings joy
and deep reflection, too.
The heart remembers all is well,
and love belongs to you.
As seasons come and seasons go,
every end is new.
