Fall is Finally Here - Poem

Updated on September 30, 2012

Rocking in my overstuffed recliner

Watching the downfall of so many leaves

Through the slightly cracked living room window.


Short pants are in the closet

Replaced by long sleeves and socks,

Wearing a lapgan because the crisp air gives me a bite.


Sipping hot apple cider keeps the cool sting away and

Helps to wash down a

Pumpkin muffin with cream cheese.


My dog must be cold.

She scratches my leg

Wanting her place as my lapwarmer.


How many candy bars will satisfy

The munchkins knocking on my door

In just a few short weeks?


Mums and pansies

Hay bales and gourds

Welcome fall to my front door.


My sweetie's favorite team

Plays football today.


Time to start

A pan of cornbread and

A pot of black bean chili.


With pleasure, I say

Fall is finally here.

      You make the Fall so delicious, warm and snugly, all I need now is a raging open wood fire. Lovely poem
