Let The Leaves Fall

They Land Where They May

If I was a leaf I would hang on

I would watch other leaves drop

As they slide by me

Watching them sail in the air

I would wave a friendly hi

Looking down I could see piles of leaves beneath me

As the wind blows I would move side to side

Then up and down

Sometimes spinning around

I would be the strongest leaf

When other leaves get raked in piles and scooped into bags

I would wave good bye

As the rain hits my leaf and runs off my back

I remember many times before this has happened

Leaving me wanting for more

I can't wait till the white snow comes

Covering me head to toe

Then when the temperature drops

I will look like a freeze pop

When the Winter is over and Spring returns

I will see new leaves grow

I can't wait to tell them what I have seen

The stories I will be able to tell

The adventures that I have experienced

So next time you look up in the sky

If you see a leaf hanging on

That is me

I may be singing my favorite song

Hang on Sloopy


hang on sloopy

Leaves are falling daily in my yard and I so like to see a yard of leaves. It makes the place look alive and beautiful. Falling leaves are messy but also normal for any yard. I like this time of year.

This was delightful. I too love that song. Falling leaves everywhere and I love all the colors. Amazingly here lots of flowers are still hanging on too. Passing this on.
