An Apple Run September gives us a treat Delighting this road athlete There are so many types Deserving the daily hypes. Yes, the apple crop is in Detesting them, a real sin Here, apple orchards abound Filling bins in a huge mound. Apples are a running treat Their juicy taste never beat Unless baked in a big pie Then earning a happy sigh. I have favorites but eat all Perhaps, why I love the fall Every day is an apple run Soon after my run’s done. Apples are a handy food Improving my daily mood Apples and pumpkin spice Hmm, a treat that’s nice. September 2022 Labor Day is the lone holiday As summer 2022 slips away Early autumn is now here As a few folks loudly cheer. Football days are back again Creating my happy grin School and fall festivals are Upon us like jam in a jar. Early on, the weather is warm So outside folks still swarm But soon, autumn temps cool Yep, it’s time to close the pool. Early morn runs are very dark And again I see the tree bark As the foliage begins to drop Amidst this colorful backdrop. September means more gear For morning runs minus fear Late September is cool to cold But this view never grows old. Autumn Running The eastern sky remains dark As I begin my Monday lark Touring the woodsy state road Pursuing an autumn episode. Here, the foliage begins a change While green stays up on the range But below, the road sees less light Creating this autumn color delight. My early morning run is now cool Sometimes cold, meaning a new rule Requires checking the early weather As Mother Nature and I run together. The morning autumn winds have a bite Gone are the easy breezy road sights Replaced now by cool windy things Minus morning noise like bird sings. My autumn run is quiet and dark And warm weather is now in park Yet, the roadside view is first rate So I smile and increase my gait.
