The Gilded Leaves Of Autumn Sigh

The gilded leaves of autumn sigh

and herein lies the reason why

Adorned for a season with colors grand

letting the winds blow where they please.

colors will fade, be reduced to a crunch

grim reaper will give the knock out punch.

“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:1-4
