                                Vicissitudes of summer's flight,
                                Wings of geese at frost's first bite,
                                Pumpkins ripened on the vine,
                                As hunter's moon, above does shine,
                                Fiery blaze of autumn's glory,
                                Portends Persophene's purgatory,
                                Cornucopias of fruited plain,
                                Bounties of Demeter's grain,
                                Verdant valleys, rising mist,
                                Sleeping flora by Helios kissed,
                                As zephyr warms a cooling land,
                                Last vestige of hot summer's hand.
                                Nature yields her offeratory,
                                As man gives thanks for harvest's glory.

Very nicely written!   You seem to be a scholar of the classics.

This was great! To put it simply....I simply loved it!
