First Leaf of Fall

I walked out to my car in the morning and low a behold a solitary leaf was sitting on my windshield. Struck by inspiration, I decided to take a picture and write something awesome about the first leaf of fall, the changing seasons and the impending colder weather........ So I uploaded the picture, and sat down to type! Unfortunately, I guess the inspiration strike was a weak one, because I could not really think of anything to say about the changing seasons that was awe-inspiring :( but I did still have the picture and since a picture is worth a thousand words I might as well share it:

Changing colors,
Falling leaves,
Autumn begins!

    Oh, come on! I was hoping to hear some grand poem.

    Ya fall is here and that means winter, which means too many things for me to name.

    But one exiting thing it means is a square dance at the M----------'s!!!

    ok ok, Grand poem for sleepy Joy:

    I sit here at my desk hands over the keys, the window is open I feel the cool breeze.

    The forest once green, is orange brown and red, as I try to compose a grand poem in my head.

    But nothing grand or even inspiring develops, just the gentle rustling of leaves, my brain it soon envelops.

    First one hour goes by, then another, as I sit in my chair listening to the leaves as they flutter.

    All I can think of is the impending cold weather, boy I can't wait to put on a sweater.

    Because while I like the changing leaves, the reason I like fall most is no need for short sleeves!

    What can I say, I am not a poet, and I think after this everyone will know it. :p

    "The poor little leaf!
    Sadness beyond belief!
    Why is it not cushioned in much royalty and splendor?
    See the fineness of it's features, as if mixed in a blender.
    It should be held in high esteem
    and I would even dare to deem
    that it would not have come down
    to the lowly, lowly ground
    if it had known that it's fate
    would be so, so far from great:

    To float towards earth... so exciting & far...

    and then get stuck on William's car."

    THE BALLAD OF THE UNFORTUNATE LEAF
    by Abigail C. Taylor, ("...you see, I'm a bit of a poet; and you, did not know it.")

    Wow Will, you certainly have more talent then me if you just quickly penned that while you were sitting there.
    Bravo for Abigail!!! That was great!!
    And I figured since everyone else was writing poems about fall I would too :0).

    It wanted adventure,
    His friends warned him
    He did not head
    And took the tumble
    Now he lies dead
    Outside my bedroom window


    Sorry guys, what can I say? I'm not a poet.
    Now that I look at it, that was kinda morbid
