The sun sinks lower on the horizon each day
In the woods it is no longer time for play
Buried nuts all gathered - nests and burrows prepared
The trees shedding leaves until limbs all bared

Crunching sounds can be heard everywhere
Of inhabitants busily scurrying here and there
Through carpet of orange, russet, red and gold
As they get ready for the impending cold

Each day sounds decrease little by little
Until no sound is heard – not even a whistle
The air getting colder and colder until
Everything starts to turn white and all still

Summer days have gone - fallen into winter days
The inhabitants snuggled into their beds to stay
Cozy and prepared for the dark days of gray
Until winter springs into warm bright summer days

About this poem:
Anymore seems like our days change right from summer to winter and winter to summer with very little fall or spring days.

We had our first sleet and snow yesterday - so not ready for this. High of 30 degrees today. And Winter doesn't officially start until December 21st.

Thanks for reading McG - however, my favorite season is Spring when all things are reborn and sprouting up through the ground and lots of color. Have a very wonderful Christmas and enjoy your cold weather.

Brings back those cold winters that I knew were to come. We as people also stocked up on goods ,never knowing if we would be snowed in or if the temperature would drop so low that we weren’t able to go out. Loved your verbiage I could feel your poem in my bones .Beautiful pictures as well. Happy New Year Kathy ,May 2020 be everything you hope for. teddybear

Again - I love Spring the best and Fall is my second favorite season of the year. For those Down Under they are in beautiful Spring.
