Fallen Leaves

This silly poem was written for Crimson’s Creative Challenge #52.

ccc#52

Skipping through the woods

Avoiding all the leaves they could

Not wanting to hurt any

and let me tell you … there were many

Stopping every now and then

To pick the pretty ones to defend

Carefully put them into a book

not wanting them to crook

Taking them all back to their mothers

Perhaps one would use them to recover

Recover what? you ask

Silly me, their facemasks

  2. Wow, avoiding the leaves. That’s a new one on me. My daughter likes to kick them up, for the noise they make. Nice one, Susan, and thanks for your CCC participation during the past year, and here’s hoping you continue with the challenge in its second year

    • I’m looking forward to many more CCC’s! When I was a child I’d rake the leaves into a pile and then jump in them. I think a lot of people have done that though.

      • What is it about autumnal leaves?
        In a book yet to be prepped for publication I character who takes omens from the fall of leaves (after kicking them).
