Autumn Air

Falling Leaves

Little leaves fall softly down
Red and yellow, orange and brown
Whirling, twirling round and round
Falling softly to the ground

Little leaves fall softly down
To make a carpet on the ground.
Then, swish, the wind comes whistling by
And sends them dancing to the sky.

The calendar says that it's fall, but today it was 107, so its hard to get in the spirit of falling leaves, chilly nights, and harvest pumpkins.  So I made this card to remind me that it won't be too much longer.

Two years ago in October I was in Corvallis, Oregon and was able to experience the true beauty of fall.

I miss the changing seasons, when Nature's calendar turns the page.  There are the snowy winter scenes, then as the page turns, we see a carpet of flowers sprinkling the hillside.  The page turns again, and we see the lazy days of summer with soft breezes and buzz of honeybees as they flit from flower to flower. Then the final page shows a burst of color--gold, red, orange and brown, an anthem singing the years accomplishments and the joy of the past year.
