Floating, falling, leaves are flying,
All around, like trees are crying,
Love the cool winds autumn blows,
Last laughing rose before it snows…
Watch Mr. R.’s Fall Song
Fall (Autumn) is the season that helps transition summer to winter. It is characterized by shorter days, and cooler weather.
In the United States, Fall starts at the end of September on the autumnal equinox- this is when days and nights are both about 12-hours long. After the equinox, days continue to get shorter and shorter throughout the Winter.
Fall is often associated with deciduous leaves that change color and drop to the ground, and also the migration of birds and insects to warmer locations where there is a greater abundance of food.
