Golden aspens, beaming bright,
To northern forests, giving light.
Birds winging southward fill the sky,
Away from snow on mountains, high.
Red maples dot the landscape, fair,
Browns and yellows are scattered, there.
The woods are tinged with warm-hues, blend,
Nature's autumnal rainbow, send.
A frosty nip now bites the air,
Tree branches, slowly, turning bare,s
Making room for spring's new-leaves, green,
Then, "AUTUMN'S RAINBOW" paints the scene!
