As day breaks, her spirit breathes

Patiently awaiting, the falling leaves

Orange, yellow, and russet red

Each tree will shed its leafy head

Decorate the ground, in perfect hue

Colors, delightful, in a vision true

Landscapes change, an added breeze

Stripping the forest’s brilliant trees

Until at last, they stand naked, bare

The spirit of autumn, now lays there
