Oh, Them Golden Colors!

Okay, autumn may be menopausal -- 
sunny or gloomy, hot or cold, generous or really witchy -- 
but every once in a while there's a glimpse of real beauty to be found. 
Ya gotta look close and real fast 'cause it could change 
with the direction of the wind, Poof! leaving you with bare, icy branches. 
(There'a a pill for that! Please, take it!)

That's probably the best description of autumn I've ever heard, Speedway.
Lovely leaves, too.

I hadn't thought of autumn as menopausal. Maybe that's because I don't know what that feels like yet. But your description is great—next door in Ohio, it's frosty and bitter one day and warm and sunny the next, and the leaves are doing their best to hang on and give us one more weekend of beauty.
