Respite Wednesday


The Autumn Is Here
by Rachel

The autumn is here, the summer is gone.
Winter will be here in not too long.
The wind is blowing like a storm,
Though the weather is very warm.
The leaves are turning brown and yellow,
The leaves make a sound like a cello.
The bears are going to bed,
Soon the leaves will turn red.
Now the birds are going away,
They will return some other day.
The sky is now getting cloudy,
The birds are chirping away loudly.
The weeds are sleeping, the flowers are too.
I love the autumn, I hope you do too.

Not much finer than autumn. Unless it's winter and snow. Hot cocoa. Warm, fuzzy blankets. Fire in the fire place. Mmmm.

Rachel. A lovely way to welcome autumn. I love the bear going to bed. Wonder what it would be like to sleep all winter?
