Fall Has Arrived
by: Lauren

The gush of wind blew my hair,
Straight up to the unforgiving air.
Fall was peaking around the trees,
Leaves would pile high,
soon up to my knees.
Hello orange, yellow, and red,
goodbye green,
Bye-bye June, July, and August,
hello Halloween.
The warmth is gone and won

by Harry Behn

A few leaves stay for a while on the trees
After their color begins to turn,
And no other leaves seem as gold as these
Not even the ones our bonfires burn
With golden flames in piles on the ground.
A few leaves stay so long that I found
The one last leaf on a tree in the snow,
And when a galloping wind came round
The edge of our house and started to blow
Snow dust to sparkles floating free.
When the wind ran away, almost with me,
And sunshine settled quiet and cold.
There, like a bird, still on the tree
Was that lonesome leaf, no longer gold
But curly and brown and dry and old

Fall Bounty

Autumn fills our baskets
with memories galore,
to warm our hearts when winter
comes tapping at the door.

Maple leaves turn scarlet
their shocking colors stun,
pansies deck the gardens
and mums are bright as sun.

A bush turns flaming orange
it's brighter than a torch,
scarecrows guard the harvest
and pumpkins light the porch.

Autumn fills our baskets
with memories to last,
through many an ice and snowstorm
till winter weeks have passed.

And good fall veggies!
