A Crisp Return

     With the forecast for the opening games of the World Series here in Boston expected to be in the low to mid-forty degree (ƒ) range, a crisp will indeed return to New England. So here is a reminder of what autumn means to us.

     Have a safe and satisfying week everyone,


A Crisp Return To Autumn

A Crisp Return To Autumn

A Crisp Return

 The leaves are changing

from green to autumn

to yellow and red

and a fiery orange

soon to be tumbling

from treetop to bottom,

as the crisp returns

to the air.


All summer they sat

in their verdant spot

providing relief

from the wet and the hot

but now their demise

can be argued not,

as the crisp returns

with a flair.


Yet, there’s beauty still

in their final days

with blankets of color

to awe and amaze

and the sunshine appears

to set them ablaze,

til the crisp turns to cold

and none spare.

    I am not ready for the crisp. Sigh. But I am afraid I had better get ready as it is here. Lovely poem, Jake. Very descriptive. Makes me want to go jump in a pile of crisp leaves! 🙂
