Aspen Gold

Autumn on Richmond Pass trail

Aspen Gold, the gift of Autumn

Hillsides all aglow

Summer's gone, its heat forgotten
Peaks are capped with snow

Gentle breezes tease each leaf
So begins the dance

Mellow golden days too brief
Hold us in a trance

We'll wander through sunlit groves; clear skies overhead
Yellow carpets line the roads where our feet will tread

We'll recall the aspens' gold in the days to come
When the wind turns bitter cold, and storm clouds hide the sun

"Aspen Study"
