A Saturday Poem

By Julie McElhinney

Crisp cool leaves
The smell of fall is here,
I recline with a book
In my favorite time of year.

It’s cool enough outside
To sit by a roaring fire,
And not feel too hot
At night when I retire.

I love to cuddle up
In a blanket or two,
Don’t ask me why
It’s just what I like to do.

I love orange pumpkins
And children in disguise,
Candied apples and popcorn
Leaves falling from the skies.

Yes this is my favorite time of year
Perhaps the best season,
I hope that you enjoy it too
With my list of every reason.
