A Prayer for Autumn/Fall

 We see signs of summer's passing in golden leaves,

shortening days, misty mornings, autumn glow.

We sense its passing in rain that dampens,
 
winds that chill, Harvest's bounty placed on show.

Creator God, who brings forth
 
both green shoot and hoar frost,
 
sunrise and sunset,
 
we bring our thanks
 
for seeds that have grown
,
harvests gathered,

storehouses filled,

mouths fed.
 
And, as your good earth rests
 
through winter's cold embrace,
 
we look forward to its re-awakening
 
when kissed by Spring's first touch. Amen
