Well Hello

Oh hello Fall. I see you've arrived.
Though summer seemed far too short, and August over far too quickly, I think I will like you too.
So long as you give us some gloriously sunny and cool days with evening sunsets hazy with harvest dust.
Breathe gold and yellow and orange and red into the leaves but don't blow them off the trees too fast.
Cover the grass in frosty icing in the morning that melts by the light of the sun.
Be cool enough for light jackets, but not cold for winter coats.
I hope you'll last at least until October 31st, please. Keep winter away at least until November. Halloween's more fun for kids when they don't have to wear winter coats underneath their costumes.
