Prose: Autumn is here. Temperatures are falling along with the leaves. Winter clothes, yellow, orange, and brown, are out of storage and the pastel shades of summer disappear for another year. Cheers for the winning football teams are loud and clear along with the crackling of burning wood in the chimneys. Do you smell the smoke? Do you smell the spiced cider on the stove and the pumpkin brownies in the oven? Isn’t autumn fabulous!
