Dancing Leaves

Dancing leaves

Whipped by the north wind

Make quite a display

Twirling round merrily


Dancing leaves

Red, orange, brown and yellow

Swirling round my feet

As I stray along country roads


They make me want

To dance along with them

As the bare tree branches

Wave from above


Dancing leaves

Such a sight to see

And crows and blackbirds

Swing in the branches blown by the wind


There is such joy

All about during autumn

Everywhere I look

And ducks and gulls bob on the waves in the river


Dancing leaves

Swirling to and fro

They make me smile

Without any doubt


Dancing leaves

And dancing me

Pushed by the wind

As birds fly along over the clouds


Nothing more merry

Than dancing leaves

Making swirls of bright colors

And covering the ground

Gypsy, the falling leaves are beautiful indeed, as is this lovely poem. However, I'm not so looking forward to clearing away the barrage of gold and amber :). Love the poem.

I love your nature poems most of all. Beautiful as always; we have some serious dancing leaves outside today. Major storm blowing through.

Anyway, well done as always, and if you are celebrating Thanksgiving, have a wonderful holiday my friend.

Part of the beauty of autumn is the movement of the leaves. And they do so many dances, don’t they? This is a wonderful time of year, made even more special by your poem. The photos meld perfectly with the words.

So glad you enjoyed this Terrye. Dancing leaves are indeed a sight in the wind.

So glad you enjoyed this ahorseback. You know when I was a child I did just that. I twirled and twirled with the leaves and then fell back into a large pile of leaves. What a rush!
