Sapphire Designs 2012


The leaves turning a beautiful shade
The wonder of wonders are now displayed
In His love and wisdom the Lord thinks it's best
The time of the year when the trees need to rest

The farmers are working hard in the fields
Gathering and storing God given yields
Preparing for winter and its wind and snow
Storing up food so His family will know

Mother in the kitchen preserving the food
The way that she does that always is good
Seeing that her family will be well fed
Gathering up quilts to put on the beds

Daddy out spending days chopping wood
To heat our home and sharing with neighborhood
Hanging the hams and the bacon to cure
He knew well how to do that for sure

After the work is finished and early to bed
Mother making sure our prayers were said
Then tucking us in to be snug and warm
This describes autumn when you live on a farm

These are the memories I will carry forever
I don't plan to forget them, no not ever
They are a part of me and always will be
I cherish them for they are part of me
