One Shot Wednesday #11 - There's Something in the Air - September 15, 2010
Sunrise was an awesome sight,
Pastels lit up the sky,
I felt a new chill in the air,
I bade summer a fond goodbye.
The school bus stop was crowded,
As I made the drive to work,
I'm so glad I'm not a teacher,
I would surely go berserk.
Already I notice changes,
In our once bright floral display,
There isn't a shadow of a doubt,
Autumn is on its way!
I can't wait to get a coffee,
That tastes like pumpkin pie,
It will be a small transition,
From my early morning chai!
Soon the ghosts and goblins,
Will be clamoring at our door,
Hoping for tooth decaying sweets,
If mothers allow them anymore.
Then, before you know it,
Autumn will fade away,
And wintery cold will barrel in,
On a blustery snowy day.
