Autumn Leaves

Leaves are falling, soft as snowflakes,
Red and yellow, gold and brown;
The breeze laughs gaily in the treetops,
Shaking all the color down.
Leaves are covering the gardens
As my blanket covers me.
When cold winter comes, the flowers
Will be warm as warm can be.

Poem: 'Leaf Blankets'

  3. All seasons are beautiful, especially Autumn...Winter tends to stay too long as it must feel we need to admire it's beauty longer than the other seasons. Thank you for sharing some autumn beauty today!

  9. Don't you just LOVE those leaves on the trees? The colors are absolutely beautiful!! I just wish they would stay on the tree and not fall to the ground in a few weeks for me to rake up :)
