Autumn Trousseau ~

Soon the leaves will all be turning,
From their many shades of green,
Into colors bright and gorgeous…
Reds and yellows, browns and orange,
Underneath the smiling sun,
Each leaf vying with the other
In the change they’ve now begun.
Giving up their Summer wardrobes,
Gladly; joyfully, with glee,
Putting on their Autumn trousseau,
As they leave their mother tree…
