Leaves

Gathering Time:

Fall Time Poem-  This poem is more about what Fall is than leaves, but it is still fun.  This is one I wrote during my college days. 

"It is Fall time shout Hooray!
It's time to put shorts and swimming suits away.
Fall is the time it starts to turn cold
When snow begins to fall, no one is told.
You'll find many clouds in the sky.
And the cool wind will quickly pass by.
Rain will come but have no fear
This just means winter is near."
