The Coming of Fall

Hannah’s latest English class poem seems appropriate on this last day of summer.



The Coming of Fall

As the last day of summer was coming to an end,
I said goodbye to a silent friend.

As I was walking home,
My mind began to roam.

I saw the calming breeze,
Flow through the rustling leaves.

The colors brown, red, and yellow,
On the leaves of Oak, Birch, and Willow.

I began to walk along the beaten fence,
That was full of holes and dents.

I saw the house with its warm lights,
And passed the scarecrow that caused many frights.

I walked up to the Jack-o-lantern glowing bright,
Smiling back without a fight.

I thought about the impending Winter squalls,
But this was the coming of Fall.

Hannah Susan Bennett, Age 12
