Autumnal Sunshine ColorsBy Olivia age 12, 2006
.Autumnal sunshine colors
Are the prettiest of all
The golden rays of sunshine
And the maple leaves that fall
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
The darkest, they are the best
The deepest red of apples
And the golden leaves at rest
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
Are the happiest it seems
And yet they are the saddest
Oh, the gold and silver streams
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
Some are warm and some are chill
The branches shed their beauty
Yet their beauty is there still
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
Are bountiful at harvest
The squash and oh, the pumpkin
And peppers--you're fully blessed
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
You can see them in a bird
See a gorgeous red or brown
Flash, they're gone without a word
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
Shine through Black Eyed Susans fair
And though it may be sunny
You feel crispness in the air
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
You can taste with every bite
Into a crimson apple
Or a piece of pumpkin bright
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
Are in each seed which does float
To the earth that softly waits
With a golden autumn note
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
They appear from left and right
Like a many featured gem
Like a ruby in sunlight
.
Autumnal sunshine colors
They are waiting ever near
Waiting for you to seek them
So search, whether there or here.
