Signs of Fall
Fall is one of my favorite times of the year! Maybe it’s the weather, the changing leaves, or just everything pumpkin, but all of it just makes me smile. National Poetry Day was October 5. What better way to celebrate this wonderful season than through a poem, especially when it’s one written by my mom.
In honor of National Poetry Day and my mom (Judy Wood), here is one of her original poems:
The signs of fall are abundantly clear
They are all around us to see, feel and hear
Falling leaves and a slight chill in the air
Mums of many colors and pumpkins everywhere
Pack away your tank tops, shorts and bathing suits
Time to bring out your sweatshirts, jeans and boots
So enjoy this beautiful time of year
Because old man winter is very near
Happy fall, everyone!
