Oh hey, Fall.
Didn't see you sneak up so quickly, friend.
If I could write you a sonnet, an ode and a poem...
And I will.
But for now, here's a list of things I just adore you for,
my sweet Autumn.
Here's to corduroys and quilted barn jackets
spiked cider and carving pumpkins
hayrides and apple picking.
roast chicken and getting myself back into the kitchen
to bake cobblers and vegetable stews.
college football and tailgates, big ol' pile of leaves.
red wine and bonfires and remembering each first day of school.
s'mores and canoe oars
that holds a gaze.
I tip my hat to you, Fall.
