Dear Fall - About your Visit
Oh you say, "Summer is in California?" Apparently you tried to visit California, but you must not have made it. We wondered where you had gone. Summer left Utah and appeared to have taken you with her. Thankfully you returned. California would like a visit from you. But, please stay here a while. We are just not ready for Winter, no offense intended I know you are close friends. We love the heavy blue-white snow that she brings. But, during Winter's recent visit I realized the ice scraper seems to be missing from my car, and I can't seem to find the box that contains my new coat. We will be thrilled to have her visit when it is her turn again, but need your visit to prepare for her long stay.
We are currently enjoying the cool days, crisp apples and the chill in the evening air that you bring. While you were gone our new sod was even dusted with a preview of Winter's snow.
Fall please stay for a little while. There are apples to can, spiced cider to drink and pumpkins to bake into pies.
Please stop in and visit California. Our friends there are missing you. (Please keep the trip quiet, we don't want to hurt Winter's feelings. She over stayed her welcome and took up some of Springs visiting time earlier this year.)
Thank you for visiting. We know it will be brief, so if I don't get to say good bye I will look forward to seeing you again next year.
