Dreaming of Autumn

I can hardly wait for Autumn!
I dream of her each day,
when I'm awake or sleeping
and when I am at play.

I am tired of sultry Summer;
I loved her for a while,
but now my heart is yearning
for Autumn's charming smile.

I am sure she will look festive
in her gala awesome dress,
and she will beckon me to join her
on her stage of playfulness.

Her leaves of gold and crimson
will dance without a care,
and I will be her partner --
we'll make a perfect pair!

In her field of haystacks drying,
Scarecrow grinning in the sun,
with his cockeyed hat a-flapping,
we will have a lot of fun!

And when it's time to carve the pumpkin
and prepare for trick-or-treat,
I will make some candy apples
for everyone to eat.

Soon on some glorious morning
I'll awaken from my dream,
and I'll say hello to Autumn,
who has arrived upon the scene!
