Summer and Fall

Purplerays

Summer And Fall.

Today it is still summer,
Tomorrow will be fall.
I see the purple asters,
I hear the autumn’s call.

The maple leaves are golden,
The pumpkins, round and yellow;
The apple cheeks are rosy,
The pears are getting mellow.

The nuts are growing rounder,
The cornstalk brown and sear.
By twenty lovely tokens,
I know that fall is near.

I feel the warm sun shining
As a balmy south wind blows;
I see the flowers blooming,
And I see the grass still grows;

The goldenrod is waving,
The bees are in the clover.
I hear a distant honking–
The geese are flying over

Today it is still summer,
Tomorrow will be fall.
Today I still am barefoot–
Oh how I love it all!
