Blessings of Autumn
Poetry by Mary T. Hoffman

Why do I love this time of year

When winter winds and cold draw near?

Is it the leaves – bronze, yellow, red –

Honking geese who fly o’erhead?

Is it the lake’s ethereal cover,

Autumn fog that comes to hover,

The gauze-like morning mist –

All of this I can’t resist?

The joy to me that autumn brings

Surpasses all the worldly things

That one can buy at any store;

God’s creation offers more.
