The Autumn Feast

Autumn feast Down Under:
A blaze of colour in the hills
And trees in their autumn best.

The flight of autumn leaves
A delightful quest for freedom
The naked branches revealed!

Autumn blues:
A few showers and thunderstorms
Before the beautiful sunrise.

Sharing the gifts of autumn
Feed the hungry child
And save the human race.

Relax, autumn is here!
The big brother is watching you
But who is watching the big brother?

Surviving the fall
The refugees count on their inner strength;
Tending the golden buds of autumn.

Feasting the senses,
They keep their autumn dreams alive
But where’s the rainbow?

The enchanted city
Falls under the spells of autumn
A blaze of colour – scenic beauty!

The lost boy finds his way,
Relaxing under the huge oak tree;
Watching the autumn birds.
