Hello, Fall

Hello, Fall.

I'm glad you're here.

You're so pretty.

Please stay a little longer.

I'm not ready for your cousin Winter.

She makes me crazy.

She lasts a long time.

She sneers at me through the window as
I am locked indoors with two rowdy boys.

She taunts me as I let the dogs out in the early mornings,
making me wish I was wearing a snowsuit
instead of PJ pants.

But, I guess she can be pretty, too.

Yeah, she's pretty.

But I'm not ready yet.

Fall, won't you please stay a little longer?
