You were all scarves and suitcases,
scented candles and autumn leaves.
You welcomed the dreary gray sky
with a sunshine smile
and I swear
the snow danced with you every year
on its first night in town.

~ Alicia N Green (Contemporary American poet and writer)

Gardener’s wife (& enthralled by all things autumnal)
