Those dancing leaves

The chill of early autumn casts
A kaleidoscope of color upon
A plethora of dangling leaves
As they shimmy and shake about

Mother Nature’s frosty breath
Hastens their departure from their lofty heights
The brassy winds of autumn will  be here soon 
Bursting forth with an exuberant breathy gusto
Prompting the leaves to whirl and spin around
Dancing merrily along the ground

Reminds this creaky old observer
Of a gleeful group of school  girls
Swirling in their colorful gowns
Happily frolicking and jumping about
Joyfully doing their happy dance

    I felt like I was out for a chilly afternoon walk in a garden. I can smell the scent of the leaves as they're being crushed by my bare feet and I can hear the crunch w/c is kind of similar to waves pounding on the shore. :) Lovely~

    Hey Donald... Nice of you to stop by. I'm glad you enjoyed my song. :o) I like what you have written here. The wording is excellent! The way you brought the two together with dancing & spinning shimming & shaking about. Very nice! I'll look forward to hearing from you again my friend.
