Quietly Winter by Micheline Hull Dolan

Winter sneaked in;
I was caught unaware.
One day I awoke
And the leaves weren’t there.

The pumpkins, bright orange,

Had long since been pies,
And the clear azure hue
Was gone from the skies.


That cool nippy chill

Became suddenly cold,
And the breeze, oh so gentle
Was a wind, downright bold.

For Winter had tiptoed,
Nodded her head,
And an blanket of white
Put autumn to bed.

Happy Holidays from Adkins Arboretum!!!
