"Autumn Leaves" ~a poem by your's truly
Thereís a first time for everything
Through a childís eyes are told,
Autumn leaves in all their splendor,
Glowing orange, red and gold.

What you may take for granted,
I grew up without.
California sunshine pales
Against autumn leaves throughout.

To some autumn means
Only winterís approaching sign,
But to me the changing seasons
Are a gift of Godís design.
