Week 17: It's gonna be fall, y'all

Twas the first day of fall weather, and all through this house

Were some cozy wool slippers, and a red flannel blouse

Tea mugs which were bulbous, nestled nearby

while a platoon of black starlings swooped in the sky

The harvest season is coming, Mal thought to herself

Lets fire up the stove and gives thanks for good health

The pumpkins in lattes, on steps, and in fields

..know not of their joy, and excitement they wield.

Mal's heart was so full seeing the leaves start to change

dreaming of squash, mums, syrup, and sage

Her blog post was due so she mustn't delay

to do with this produce, she had to relay

So taking note of this list which is shown right below

and recipe ideas that we'd all like to know

Happy Fall, EVERYBODY! Mal started to shriek
