Autumn Leaves

From our December 2012 issue

By Alder Cranton – Hanna, Alta.

Pretty yellow leaves
Playing in the sun
How nice it is to leave our tree
And join in Autumn fun

So please Mr. Gardener
Put your rake away
Until we’ve had our fun
Of chasing every other leaf
That has fallen from our tree

Be it birch or pear or poplar
It’s the freedom that we feel
Before we have to go to bed
‘Neath a cozy blanket of snow.
