I was thinking as I was just walking Through the bottom woods one day Autumn sun rays were still angling Through the enormous crimson canopy So many bright Red and Scarlet Mixing with many Orange and Yellow Leaves dazzling falling all around me Above me a passing flock of Canada geese Noisily cackling formation in their large V I watched in awe with such wonder pass Now what lays before me as I make my way Knowing it won’t be long now maybe a few more Cold fronts and those wet cold showers And in no time just like I snap my fingers Seasons change and it becomes winter again

About this poem:
There is this short, brilliant foliage season in the northern forests of the Appalachian Highlands and so breathtakingly spectacular going on here at this moment.
