Fall, brought to you in living color

It’s fall.

Shadows getting longer,

Likewise are the nights.

Logs in the fireplace,

Turn out all the lights.

Moon’s on the treetops,

Cows are in the barn.

Peace is in the valley,

All up and down the farm.

End of the workday,

Supper’s on the table.

Well, maybe it’s the microwave,

We all do what we’re able.


Red and yellows? Awesome fellows in Milam’s fall of 2013. Red and yellows? Awesome fellows in Milam’s fall of 2013. Turkey time is Thursday,

Christmas on the way,

Happy time for families,

Laughter’s every day.

Leaves have gone to glory,

Yellow, red and brown.

Falling on the meadow,

Blanketing the town.

Beauty in our county,

Every notch and nook.

Hey, don’t you miss it!

Lift up your eyes and look.

It’s fall.
