Autumn’s Child - Poem by Marilyn Lott

I look out my window and see
Little children in the leaves
Romping like puppies
Arms covered in warm sleeves

The wind is slightly blowing
But the sun is shining down
Giggles from these precious kids
Smiles on faces replace frowns

Ah, autumn’s child is happy
As their arms are stretched high
Throwing the brilliant leaves
Straight up into the sky

It’s a delightful time of year
Don’t you find this is true?
As nature does a stunning thing
And gives the autumn child to you!

    This poem romps down the page with wonderful Autumn images and of course the children.
    It is simply delightful in every way. 10 Karin Anderson (Report) Reply
