Leaves of Autumn

As summer turns to Autumn, the leaves begin to turn
About God's love and beauty, this is the time to learn.

Just look outside your window, at colors bright and bold
Leaves of red and orange and brown, and some look just like gold.

You say you don't believe in God? I say, "how can you doubt?"
When you go to to your window, and simply just look out.

Outside my kitchen window, a tree grows strong and tall
It brings such joy and peace of mine, to watch leaves of Autumn fall.

It sways in winds but never falters, and from its pattern, never alters
It must be God no man can say, I made that tree to look that way.

The sun rays form a halo,  around that big strong tree
And there's a voice that seems to say, Look up and think of ME.
