Poet’s Corner


By Linda Vancour

Autumn visits us here today
With all the leaves in disarray
Green, Brown and Orange there
Scattering acorns In the air
Swishing thru the pile of leaves
Getting them stuck on our sleeves
Such fun this time of year
With the season’s chill in the air
People flock up North to see
All the colors that are to be
Beauty surrounds those that do see
What Mother Nature came to be
Enjoy this very colorful time of year
All the stories that you will hear
Until we meet again next year
Keep warm smile and stay near
