THE SUN'S RAYS SHORTEN
When daylight hours grow shorter during autumn months,
and leaves turn golden and fall,
the melatonin production in animals increases
helping to make the deep sleep of hibernation possible.
Sun's rays shorten for a reason.
It's all about the season.
"Don't the hours grow shorter as the days go by.
You never get to stop and open your eyes.
One day you're waiting for the sky to fall.
The next you're dazzled by the beauty of it all."
