Leaves - Six Words Friday

 In Autumn - by Winifred C. Marshall
 
They are coming down in showers,
 The leaves all gold and red;

They are covering the little flowers,

And tucking them up in bed.

They have spread a fairy carpet
All up and down the street
And when we skip to school
They will rustle 'neath our  feet

Joann, this is delightful! It's 1 AM, I'm awake because I don't feel that great, but the poem and pictures you offered today put a smile on my face.

I like the moss and leaf image best. The green is so intense. - Margy

JoAnn, really beautiful pics and love the little poem..Looks like fall for sure.. There is a beautiful maple tree a couple of doors down and when the sun sets on it you would think its on fire. So pretty and something I look forward to each fall. Yesterday had pretty heavy winds and the leaves are almost all on the ground..Boo Hoo..Happy Thursday..Judy

Beautiful images. The first picture's leaves colors are so vivid and rich. I read this poem yesterday while searching for words to use. They are perfect for this week's word.

Your first picture just BURSTS and shouts "autumn!"
We live on a quarter acre of woods - oaks. While they provide endless acorns and fun for squirrel-watching, the colors are never as vivid as those of the maple tree. But my childhood home was on a street of them and walking to school this time of year was like going through a tunnel that was on fire. Exciting!

JoAnn, all the photos are beautiful, but I especially love the first photo, absolutely gorgeous...it reminds me of my home state, Vermont.
My daughter recently came back from visiting her cousin/aunt in the Port Townsend area and said she is ready to move there, she just loved it.
Have a wonderful week.

Lovely! I think the wind yesterday whipped a lot of leaves from the trees. The weather is making it harder for the fall colors to put on a real show. Enjoy it while it lasts!

This was delightful. There is something so fun about rustling through fallen leaves. Great posts and photos to go with the words.
