Falling Fast

Photo by Leigha Robbins

autumn leaves are all around

slowly falling they hit the ground

orange and yellow, brown and red

they fall so the earth can be fed

the leaves decay and become food

a crisp air puts us in the mood

for bonfires and hay rack rides

with those we love at our sides

autumn is the best you see

it’s when my mom gave birth to me
