A Poem by JanieB

The leaves...



The wind whistles through the autumn leaves

So beautiful hanging onto their powerful trees

The trees which sway to and fro

The wind it has such a powerful blow.


The brown, green, yellow and orange

Such amazing autumnal colours

Makes the woods such a magical place

Full of splendour and beauty.


The carpet is laid upon the ground

Awaiting the children to run around

Running through the crackling sounds

Of the leaves below their little feet.


Oh the joy of their laughter

The smiles on their faces

Such a simple and amazing sight

The trees, and their leaves of autumn.

This is wonderful! Autumn is my favourite season and it is, indeed, magical. I remember being little and the crunchy leaves were possibly the best part, aside from Halloween of course! XD
Great job!

I enjoy the illusion of rhyme. When you think you are going to bring it back, its lost in the splendor of description.
Make me want to be 12, in another land, waiting for the first pile of leaves that I can take a head first dive into, hoping the slug houseowner didn't put a pile of bricks underneath.
