An Autumn Day


Pumpkins in the cornfields,
Gold among the brown,
Leaves of rust and scarlet
Trembling slowly down;
Birds that travel southward,
Lovely time to play;
Nothing is as pleasant
As an autumn day!

Autumn Leaves


Down
down
down
Red
yellow
brown
Autumn leaves tumble down,
Autumn leaves crumble down,
Autumn leaves bumble down,
Flaking and shaking,
Tumbledown leaves.

Skittery
Flittery
Rustle by
Hustle by
Crackle and crunch
In a snappety bunch.

Run and catch
Run and catch
Butterfly leaves
Sailboat leaves
Windstorm leaves.
Can you catch them?

Swoop,
Scoop,
Pile them up
In a stompy pile and
Jump
Jump
JUMP!


My son and daughter put up our tent this afternoon. It's such a nice beautiful day. We were playing rummy inside, when the dogs wanted to play too..
I don't know how long they will keep the tent up. It seems to make them very happy.. Although..No.. they cannot sleep in it..lol

I hope everyone is having a good weekend...
Bunches of hugs....

Fall is a wonderful season. It is an intimation of man's mortality and the transitory conditions of things in this world. Thanks for the beautiful post and poem. You have such a wonderful family life. God bless you more for it.
