Signs Of Fall - Poem by David Whalen

The first lonely leaf to fall
The breezy rattle of cornstalks

The fresh smell of baled hay
The turkeys prescient gobble

Dawn breaking later
Sun setting sooner

Ads for kid’s school clothes
Temperature no longer rising

Wooly worms forecasting our winter
Monarchs wisely migrating to Mexico

Blackberries ripe
Walnuts falling

Squirrels busily storing
Sunflowers sadly drooping

Changes on the horizon
Fall is coming

The best season of all!
(and pre-season football)
