The Colors of Fall

Walking to school
Among the blowing leaves
Stepping on the crunchy ones
Humming a song
Buttoning up my coat
Wishing that I had brought mittens
Dodging the puddles
Walking a bit faster, don’t want to be late
Munching on pumpkin seeds-
Forgot about breakfast
Watching the sun rise just a bit higher
Hearing the birds call
They are flying south
Some more leaves fall
With that big gust of wind
While I see the colors of fall
Wishing for snow
And less homework
Shoving my hands deeper in my pockets
And saying a prayer of thanks
For the orange, yellow, brown, red
On black.
