As Days Fall Quiet

Β©The Strawberry Post

A beautiful day,
A wondrous sight,
As days fall quiet,
Losing their light.

Bright greens and reds,
Turn into browns,
Crisp and crunch.
Swept out of towns.

Winds turn bold,
Chilling to core,
Skin now uncorvered,
Left red and sore.

Wrapping round layers,
As trees now go bare,
Others stay clothed,
Bright lights they now wear.

Coming together,
Resting by fire,
Creatures outside,
Safe or expire.

As bitter winds blow,
No escape from dark,
As crystals of white,
Make world look stark.

Making, preparing
For one special day,
Imaginging, hoping,
To enjoy and play.

The beautiful dark,
That magical night,
A time to make wishes,
Smile, sing, reunite.
