The Autumn sky says its good bye much too soon.
Dark clouds that could reflect the sunlight
Now stretch their fingers across the amber sky.
Amber, red and yellow leaves banish the summer's green.
The playground empties out too early.
The neighbor's children can be heard but not seen.
In the morning mother finds how cold the car door handle is.
She checks the kids for proper clothes.
The brisk wind sends dusky leaves dancing down the street.
