Little, and fragile, but full of wonder.
He sits in a pile, of freshly raked leaves.
Smiling up at the placid blue sky,
He lets out a burst of laughter.

What excitement in brings,
to jump in those leaves,
to hear them crackle, and crunch, beneath him.
He wiggles in a pool of warm color.

Wrapped in a fuzzy brown coat,
blonde hair topped with a knit cap.
His eyes smile, along with his mouth,

Arms up in the air,
not a care in the world,
autumn brings color to his face,
making his cheeks rosy.

The picture of innocence
we all hold so dearly,
little and fragile,
but full of wonder.

The author's comments:
This is a poem creating a snapshot of a little boy in the fall. It is meant to capture innoncence.
