Nature Prepares for Winter

Leaves have fallen down
Making colorful bed
Children hide and seek
Parents came with rake
Took the leafs away

Trees stand gawky 
Bare to the bones
No leaf for dress
Not intended

Season new
Welcome change
Birdies flew

From nest

    Wow! What a wonderful, creative write, Joy. And I agree with what Dr. Ram said below. Winter finds creatures taking refuge indoors. Love, Carolyn
