A silly little poem to celebrate fall!



What The Falling Leafs Say

I know what the falling leafs say.
Old Man Winter is on his way.

He's coming! He's coming! They quietly call,
As they slowly begin their fall.

They paint the sky in brilliant hues,
shouting out their dreadful news.

They twist , turn, and spin in the air.
Landing here, there, and everywhere!

Covering the earth like a calico sheet.
they rustle and crackle under my feet.

They sing a song of Winters return
and of the Summer days for which they yearn.

If you listen closely you will hear them call
Goodbye Summer. Hello Fall.
