Living Treasures

          I have sunlight on my shoulders
          with bright blue skies ahead,
          And bluebirds sang a song for me
          while I was still in bed.

          There's a hint of spice and cinnamon
          brought by the morning breeze,
          And there's a touch of red and gold
          appearing in the trees.

          Days are growing shorter now
          and nights can bring a chill.
          The squirrels are hiding acorns
          in the woods beside the mill.

          Mom's making apple cider
          and filling mason jars.
          September nights have been so clear
          you can see a million stars!

          It's harvest time upon the earth,
          a time for giving thanks,
          For these, the living treasures,
          we never find in banks.

          God showers us with blessings
          sometimes great, sometimes small..
          And for these, the living treasures,
          we praise Him for them all!
