Thanksgiving Parade

cranberry leaves

Pumpkins paint the garden coral,

Arbours don their Sunday best;

Grasses nod in shades of sorrel,

Geese sing hymns upon their quest.

Raindrops augment sweet perfume

As Autumn acts her great charade;

All of Nature stands in wonder,

Gives her thanks in loud parade.

Mardi Gras Costume

Mardi Gras  costume and mask over face,

Twirling of ribbons and finding of place,

Stepping in time to the autumnal beat,

 Outlandish fall foliage parades down the street.
