Once again, it is that season of the year
which we enjoy bragging about so much
(as if we had a great deal to do with bringing
Autumn has arrived once again...
With flamboyant flare, the eastern skies are
aflame with splashes of tangerine and gold.
There are plucky pecans and orange plastered
plump pumpkins, hot apple pie ala mode
Brisk, invigorating walks down tawny leaved lanes.
Yesterdays remembered down golden green roads.
Each year we bask in the beauty of this wondrous
season. With deep breaths we inhale the expectant
exhilarating air as the passage of each day pushes
us closer toward Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Street lights, porch lights, parlor lights take on
a warm afterglow and homes once again become
our safe harbor.
To all of you who would join with us in celebrating
this glorious season...We salute you...
as one fall guy to another.
