Dropped Gowns

As of the latest rain and wind
The trees have dropped their gowns
Of red and brown and gold
The change of seasons is profound
Skies of gray
Grass carpeted with fallen leaves
Air refreshed by northern breeze
Summer’s hold has been broken
Cooler temperatures
encroach upon the power bill
to maintain comfort in houses

Change me too, with this new season
Help me transfigure into the plan You
Have held all along
Not jumping to negative conclusions
Adapting with wait and see attitudes
Praise more
Know myself as
a wanted cherished child

Now sixty-eight years and a few days older
Yet Your child always
