Poem: Autumn

Just something I wrote the other day and wanted to share...



The wind is as cold as an ice cube
Fresh from the freezer's ice tray
The sun pokes its head through the clouds
Trying to chase the rain away
And all the while the leaves are changing
And falling to the ground
Humans and animals scamper over them
Making a small crunching sound

The smell of apples and pumpkins
Fill the chilly air
As excited little girls and boys
Pick the Halloween costumes they'll wear

Soon the day for trick-or-treating
Will finally be here
Bringing with it quite a mixture of feelings
From happiness to fear
For some just think that Halloween
Is a chance for a little fun
While others hold fast to the old ways
And rituals are done

Autumn is a season that
Brings everyone such pleasure
For Autumn is full of sights and smells
That everyone can treasure
