Fall is definitely coming!

I was sitting outside today. As I looked up at the pear tree, I realized that fall is on its way. The leaves were starting to turn orange and yellow.

Here is a poem that I wrote and would like to share with you:

Fall’s Face

Summer’s sizzle
Is slowly fading.
The sunlight’s slant
Is heading south.
Days dim, and
Grow gradually shorter.
Cool nights chill
The chirping crickets.
Plants and trees sigh –
Seeking rest.
Leaves make
Magical color changes.
Bears bulk up
To sleep soundly.
Geese gather
To go southward.

Fall’s face
Finds the flora and fauna
Sleepy and sated –
From the rush and bounty
Of the summer gone.
