Fair to middlin'
Soup is something you can eat
all year round,
we do it all the time.
But it is in the fall
that we have our soup suppers
and our chili feeds.
Vegetable soup is autumn colored.
The chili is red as sumac and red maples.
Autumn is a soup of leaves and frost
that swirl around on the seasonís wind.
It makes us seek out our cozy and comfyís
so Autumnís soup wonít make us shudder.
We crave our hot Autumn soups to warm us inside,
served up with sweet breads and butter.
