Deeply colorful leaves , so rich,
Filling backyards, needing a pitch,
Into piles, then a large trash bag,
May cause those workers’ backs to sag.
Harvest time in so many ways,
Tally the fruit from former days.
Work and toil bring big pay offs,
Full horns-a-plenty rest in lofts!
Time to give thanks for all we’ve gained,
Fill those coffers with all attained!
