Fall


So this is fall? Of course it is!
The leaves know that.
They’re falling flat
And edgewise too.
And every falling way they sail
Is beautiful to see.
Some fall fast,
Some slowly fall,
Zigzagging any way at all
Until they lie all crisp and thin.
And that’s the time that I fall in—
Fall into any heap I see
And let the leaves fall over me!
