peotry? All right, I'll play:

Leaf after leaf drops off, flower after flower, Some in the chill, some in the warmer hour: Alive they flourish, and alive they fall, And Earth who nourished them receives them all. Should we, her wiser sons, be less content To sink into her lap when life is spent?

Hear the sledges with the bell, silver bells What a world of merriment their melody foretells How they tinkle, tinkle tinkle in the icy air of night While the stars that oversprinkle all the heavens seem to twinkle And so on & so forth.....

Excepting Fall

Those damned leaves come to fill me with this dread that I will have to rake them up for bags. I sometimes wish these cursed trees were dead but crave their foiling summer's light that nags.

Squirrels are digging holes in my green lawn. and I will have to fill them up with dirt. They toil 'til dusk, begin before the dawn. I wish I knew some way to make them hurt.

I hate the taunting fall, its heat and cold. Its weather never leaves my world alone. It only tells me I am growing old. I don't enjoy its message or its tone.

The dogs are happy, so I'll stay inside. My summer's gone, I'll sit and wish I'd died.

---Actually. I love fall but didn't want to write anything nice about it!~)
