Fall -in love with NC

Change of Seasons

Much lament the Northerners
who move to warmer climes
"I'll miss the change of seasons,
when there's only palms and pines"

 But travel south I implore,
From Maine to Holly Springs
to marvel at the palette
that a southern autumn brings

Vermillion of the sourwood
The scarlet of Black Gum 

 The russet of the Oak and
Poplar yellow as the sun                         

Lakes reflect the golden bronze
of Hickorys near by

The ever changing Cherry
against a temperate azure sky

From the ocean to the Blue Ridge
Carolina is ablaze
So, come enjoy the beauty
of our changing season days
