The leaves are yellow, red and brown,
A shower sprinkles softly down
And the air is fragrant, crisp and cool,
And once again, I'm stuck in school.
~ Jack Prelutsky
I like the images in this poem, especially the shower of leaves sprinkling down, and the ending reminds me of my son, Nick. I can see him sitting in class, looking out the window at the splendor of autumn, and wishing he could be out there in it instead of having to be inside, learning about math and social studies!
