Green Fragrant Spring

Standard

Young greenness everywhere!

Old greenness, too.

Evergreen trees,

A dead turtle.

Everything’s green,

Both old and new.

Beautiful flowers,

An old rotting shrub.

The flowers smell like spring.

The shrub like summer,

When everyone’s sweaty,

And needing a scrub.

It’s not summer yet.

The air is cool still.

The breeze is fresh,

The flowers are soft,

Buttercups, dandelions

Cover the hill.

Soon

Standard

It is very cold.

The Wind has lost his scent.

Autumn scent not strong enough

To overcome the cold.

But with leaves starting to change,

I know it will be soon.

With air cooling down,

I know it will be soon.

With the everyone back in school,

I know it will be soon.

With Halloween costumes on sale,

I know it will be soon.

Autumn’s End

Standard

Reader #1:         Scent of Autumn

                           Gone from air,                       

                           Rain washed it away.

Reader #2:        Leaves have fallen,

                           Trees are bare,

                           Color has left Day.

Reader #3:        Birds are leaving,

                           Some have stayed,

                           To say one last goodbye.

All:                   They wish for one last

                         Look at home,

                         Before it’s time to fly!

Autumn Has Sprung

Standard

Autumn leaves glow on every tree,

Colors shining bright.

Leaves demasked in yellow and red,

What a pretty sight!

Red leaves, orange leaves,

Golden ones too,

They shine so bright for me and you!

No leaf is perfect,

Flaws have they all,

So all leaves are special

As off trees they fall.
