~ Autumn Leaves ~

The falling leaves look like confetti thrown at a church wedding,
They twist, they turn, they hover, they spiral,
they fall,
The shower of falling leaves is such a pretty sight,
Their beautiful colors gracefully
glide with them all.

The burnt oranges, yellow, reds, and bronze colored leaves
Cover the landscape like a tapestry carpet
on the ground,
Air currents blow the leaves from the trees,
Then they glide gracefully downward to the ground
without a sound.

The falling Autumn leaves are such a beautiful sight,
Foretelling that Jack Frost and Old Man Winter
will soon come,
The orange pumpkins sitting silently on door steps,
All enjoy watching Autumn leaves
fall in the sun.
