Such Be the Gift

Such Be the Gift 

Touches of crimson on the dogwood tree
'Tis the play of color in this season to be
Each leaf holds glimmers of gold
Within, the story of days be told
'Tis Summer's end, hail to the Autumn anew
Treasures of color in many a hue
Such be the gift of tree and time
The breath of beauty, the pulse sublime.
