A walk down the lane this crisp, autumn day brings so many delights~
a squirrel gathering fat acorns scampers up a mighty oak tree
hiding his scavenged treasure in an old tree knot.
Bluebirds fly through the meadow; a flash of vivid blue,
like a jewel among the green leaves.
The river sparkles in the dazzling sunlight,
as a snowy egret delicately steps along the shore.
The breeze wraps me in its chilly embrace~
a brief reminder that winter will not tarry long.
