Autumn Time

“By all these lovely tokens, September days are here, with summer’s best of weather and autumn’s best of cheer” – Helen Hunt Jackson

Fall is the best time of year for me. I used to dread it, but now that I am not in grade school anymore it is a sensational time. For one thing, football is back and in full swing again. It seems I am inside all the time now, watching great game after great game, catching up on all things fantasy and reveling in the stats, videos, and ultimate controversy surrounding this American tradition. The many different teams, their colors and logos all unique, the sweet sound of pads and helmets clashing, it’s all like a dream and is a bullet train that takes us along for a thrilling ride all the way to February.

Autumns in Michigan, where I live, are the time when everything seems to drop back into place, back to normalcy. Things get much quieter around here. There is not much activity outside because everyone is so busy with school or work. The magic and rushing sense of summer is long gone.

Autumn Time

My cheeks feel flushed

As the temperature plummets

Never had a pumpkin spice latte

Autumn Time

~~

September breeze

Chimes in the wind

Season of new hope

Autumn Time

~~

School days are back

Kids tucked inside

The magic of summer is gone

It’s time to use your mind

 ~~

Leaves are changing colors

The life cycle continues

Drift from the trees

Crunch under my shoes

 ~~

Slight chill in the air

Grass tipped with dew

Going down the ski slope

Towards white and blue

 ~~

The great game of football

Kicks into high gear

From high school to professional

It’s a new time to cheer

 ~~

The baby freshman

In their final leg of school

Hoping to fit in

Playing it cool

 ~~

Mid-autumn nights

Cool and crisp

Crickets chirping

The lake of mist

 ~~

Pools are closed

Lonely now

But it won’t be long

Until “Cannonball!”

 ~~

Fall TV returns

Favorites settling easy

New ones launching

Hoping to please picky me

~~

Warm cozy nights

All wrapped up in my hoodie

Rain splatters the window

While watching classic movies

~~~~

Autumn is somber

Sweet and sound

Old things die

And new life comes around

Autumn Time
