Autumn, come...COME.
Let your sun corral the accumulating clouds;
Low to the sky, capturing the coolness,
Like a tease of rain.

Pilgrims bring...BRING
The harvest to the barn;
Your bounty fills the belly, Thanksgiving fare;
Like the pumpkins bursting from stem.

Season, gaze...GAZE
To the beauty, as it gleams through the groves;
Glancing to ochre, crimson, and gold;
Like a gallery of Van Gogh’s.

Bird, fly...FLY
With familiar family flocks
To feather or forfeit time
Like those always heading home.

Leaf, flutter...FLUTTER,
In the wind lay such frolic
Of murmured whispers beyond the forest,
Like a secret hushed no more.

Moon, rise...RISE
As the rhapsody of night returns;
Overseeing the charge of darkness
Like a sentry alert on command.

Wind, whip...WHIP
Across the new mown fields
Whirling your strength, weakening the leaf
Like a last lover’s goodbye, they hold on till no more.

Winter, please...PLEASE,
Do not present yourself too soon.
Leave autumn playing and prancing
Like a child's praises and prayers on a Sunday afternoon.

Loved all of the action words to describe autumn's onset, and the plea for winter not to come too soon.
