Fall Poem

A breeze in my season,
acorns blowing in wind
Helps weather turn cold,

The leaves on the trees,
Go red, orange, gold…

Pumpkins are picked,

Cranberries served,
Winged insects fly south,

Like so many birds

Reptiles slow,

Get ready for rest,
Hibernation in winter,
animals sleeping cartoon
It’s when they rest best…
It comes after summer,
smiling sun cartoon
Before winter’s freeze,
The season called autumn,
Or fall if you please…

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.
