When Fall Goes Away

In autumn a young child opened their eyes
 They saw the world and all its colors
They saw the crisp fall leaves, all the bright reds, and yellows 
 They smiled at the sky
Then They cried
They cried because no matter how beautiful  the world was right now
It wouldn't last
It would go away in a few months 
Then the grass would turn to sludge
The warm fall breeze would be a chilling screaming wind
The pretty leaves would fall off leaving the trees bare and empty 
The world would all be empty
                                           white
                                                    cold
The child thought of this as he cried 
Then he got up and walked back to his home to wait out winter
