Autumn Trousseau ~

Soon the leaves will all be turning,
From their many shades of green,
Into colors bright and gorgeousโ€ฆ
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 treeโ€ฆ
