The tress across the river

Were painted in shades

Of red, yellow and orange

Creating a picture

Of a paradigm of Autumn

Reminding us too

That winter is on the way

The winds blow harder

Shaking the trees

Day after day

Until the branches are bare

And the first snowflake falls

Take a walk

Down this path

The trees are calling your name

Take a walk

Make your own way

The creek flows towards peace

Take a walk

In this idyllic place

Mother Nature is waiting there
