Oh, the Wonder of it All!

The air is so cool and crisp
It's my fondest wish
To see Autumn's
first leaf fall.
Oh, the wonder of it all!
Red, yellow, green, and brown
Autumn's first leaft gently falls
to the ground.
The leaf in my hand is so very small.
Oh, the wonder of it all!
The wind blows the leaf away
there's no reason for me to stay.
I marvel at the first sign of Fall.
Oh, the wonder of it all!
1986's version

Poet's Notes about The Poem

It was the Fall of 1984, and I decided to go for a walk in Clark's Park. It is located in the northern part of Everett, Washington where I live. This poem is based upon an actual experience. The first 1984 version partly used this formate: 'Oh, The Wonder of it All! '
in the body of the text. My mom told me I used to many caps. hence
the 1986's final version. This was one of the first poems I wrote as an adult. It was one of the main reasons I have been busily composing poems ever since. Since I was born October 4,1954. I thought that a Fall poem about an Autumn leaf was an excellant idea.
