the magical season is here –
a season expressing an evolution;
a season calling for a solution.
the modest season is here –
a season revealing a flaw;
a season giving a cause,
the nutritious season is here –
a season to revive the sun
a season to strive the wind
and shut the gun.
fall’s pure flavors united
to boost souls.
fall is fall
for it renders the world.
after every goodbye, it evolves.
after every beginning, it arises anew.
fall is here-
for the world
