Leaves


Leaves are turning
Many shades of
....red
........gold
............brown
And many colors inbetween
The earth and autumn sky

Their edges are curling
They're ready to fall
Down below my feet
Onto hushed sidewalks

Capriciously I will step on the fallen leaves
- C - R - U - N - C - H -
Is the sound they will make beneath my shoes
The sound that since as a child I always loved
On my way walking to and from school
Weighted down by candy and books
