Autumn breathes one last breath of summer
The sun fills the air with its golden radiance
The gentle zephyrs caress me with their sweet touch
The bare trees sigh their patient sigh of seasons
The leaves dance their ballet of changes, signaling winter
And though the earth will soon be cold and dead----

Today it burns with an Autumn Fire.

Vernon L. Townsend, Jr.
