Delights of Autumn--By Maurice J. Reynolds--United States

Delights of Autumn

Lemonade cravings,
lazy moods,
sentiment remembering’s,
hypnotic currents of air
that caress the body,
soothing melodies from
the "bird" choir,
anticipation of nature's
changing landscape,
a smile for no reason 
other than the season,
an evening walk downtown
just for the sake of creating
a memory.

  5. "a smile for no reason other than the season," I especially love these lines. But the whole poem is a beautiful reminder of the season to come. Blessings!
