Mellow fruitfulness

The Autumn has began with the leaves falling away from the trees painting the roads colourful.Here is a poem ,welcoming Autumn

Autumn leaves
Painting by Peppi Elona

Paintings of spring and summer
are withered away
Cleaning the body of trees by wind,
flowers and leaves fall-away
Making them free of makeups to get dressed up 
ready for the advancing weather
Bringing in a smooth transition
from the hot summer to the cold winter
Halloween!.....the longest possible holiday 
expected to be somewhat ghostlier
With the arrival of night 
that becomes noticeably earlier
Mixed with a certain melancholy
linked to the arrival of harsh weather
Its a time of mellow fruitfulness that slowly gather
The story of fall is adventuresome
Yes...,The Autumn has come
