i can hear it in the air

smell it in the wind

feel it in my bones

autumn is coming back

as summer lets her grip slide

the chill nights are getting cooler

the cicadas chirp more and more

as if sensing the rise of fall

soon we will have cider drinks

be wearing coats and serving children candy

be eating pumpkin-flavored desserts

be carving pumpkins

gorging on popcorn and watching horror movies

for now, we watch the fall of summer as she prepares one last stand

determined to win more victims to her unrelenting hand

soon autumn will be here

knowing that fills me with cheer.

a/n: for lovers of fall.
