Waiting For October


The trees fall off their leaves

Returning to the ground

Children scamper and jump,

Fluffing the red and orange pillows.

Parents eye and smile

Pulling the naked leafs to piles

Where their kids trample

Bump and jump

While giggling, into the pit.

Summer waves goodbye as autumn walks home

Dressed in long sleeves

Holding a pumpkin and scarf,

Decorated in dazzling designs.

School children run past the houses

With ghosts and ghouls

Strewn across the barren lawn,

Followed by boney skeletons.

Here she sits,

Waiting for October.
