The song of autumn

Hear the hum of the turning earth
hear the song of the distant sun
hear the crackle of frost-coated leaves
hear the crispness of sharp grass
hear the falling of the last, late petals
hear the farewells of migrating birds
hear the glory of photosynthesis
hear the scent of mulching leaves
hear the forage of sprouting mushrooms
hear the early darkening of the day
hear the snuffle of hibernating hedgehogs
hear the redness of hips and haws
hear the blanket of autumn descending
hear the hum of the turning earth.
