Kick up the leaves

Poem out loud

                 Kick Up the Leaves 

Here I come!  
My legs kick
Up yellow, red,
and golden leaves
Gentle swish 
under my feet   
calms my soul—
Enthusiasm peeks 
out through the 
trees
What a morning!
My eyes scan the
dirt path—
Slow Down! 
Stop! 
My hand scoops
up a giant 
Maple leaf
We embrace the
last mile together 
Inspired to create
something new.  

“You can make anything by writing.”

—C.S. Lewis
