Autumn Leaves

As the autumn

winds begin to blow

falling leaves

of red,yellow and gold

They fall

on the ground below

a cascade of colors

of red and gold

Squirells playing

in all the trees

as the autumn winds

start to blow

Bringing memories

of you and me

as we watch the leaves

falling from the trees

Squirells building their nest

getting ready for the winter snow

gathering the leaves

from the ground below...

Ezcellent evocation.  Autumn has always been a time of intense memories for me, since my Senior year in high school.  Go figure.  I have never understood why, and by this time of my life I do not care.  Your poem is very good, and very moving.
