Many seasons come and go...

Many seasons come and go but autumn is the one I can’t let go,
also known as fall,
when the leaves change their color and fall,
fall to the ground and hardly make a sound,
walking through the woods  you see reds, oranges, golds and browns.

You feel a chill in the air as the breeze passes you by,
you notice the hay and cornstalks in the corner of your eye,
this scene is beautiful, its classic its fall at its best.

As the sun sets and the temperature drops, food, fun, and friends is your next stop,
at a local café  where inside feels  cozy and warm where the cold is at bay
where the menu is covered in fall eats, drinks, desserts and specialty sweets.

I’ll start with something hot like chocolate or apple cider with a hint of cinnamon,
with a side of Maple or pumpkin cheesecake to finish my order,
at last sitting and laughing with friends,
it’s not quite the same as spring and summer and nothing like winter
many seasons come and go but autumn is the one I can’t let go.
