I love the autumn view,
With colors every hue,
What joy to see the sunset glow
Beneath the clouds, beams of yellow
Casting golden light over all
The village in the valley.
Mountains blue in deep shadow
Covered by dense clouds of snow
Another moment, see the change,
Rich red is now reflected
Across the clouds' low wavy surface.
Such heavy clouds surely must
Promise an early flurry of snow.
It will blanket the wind-blown leaves
That cover the parched fields and gardens.
The sunset glow now casts a light,
Weird in color, so dazzling a yellow
Over all the landscape valley.
