Taste of Fall

Fall 2011 273

Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Labor Day weekend. We’ve been busy with family this weekend so thought I’d pull something out of my files to use as a blog post. Here’s a poem I wrote years ago that I hope will help put you in the mood for fall. Ah, September!

Taste of Fall

I always like to see
September roll around,
Fall mornings that surprise us
And slip up without a sound.

A taste of fall is all it takes
To invigorate our senses,
The feel of summer doldrums
Gives way to walking fences.

Long sleeved shirts and jeans
Are put on with a smile,
And a jacket for the morning
Might be needed for awhile.

But watch out for that taste of fall—
It might be just a tease,
Summer has a way of hiding
Before resurfacing with ease!

We’ve had a few cool mornings so far, but it warms up pretty fast. Just a taste of fall, but oh how sweet that early morning taste is to summer weary folks like us, huh? So thankful for a God who knows just how to refresh u

“Taste and see that the LORD is good…” Psalm 34:8a
