It's Here

In autumn the falling leaves
Run races on the paths,
Tumble  head over heels
And catch against the tufts of grass.

I gather them in a heap
With a stiff brush and rake
Though they are light as feathers
And do their best to escape.

Then I splash right into the heap
And the leaves wash over me
With a long swishing sound
Like a wave of the sea.

Beautiful and vivid. I wish our leaves would start turning colors. I feel like I'm missing out on fall this year!

Every time I see pictures like this, I wonder why I'm living in colorless Arizona.
