A Free Verse poem
It starts as a seed planted in the yard,
But soon is a sapling with one tiny leaf.
As the tree grows, lots more leaves appear.
It gets higher and higher and touches the sky!
Then, one day I wake to a world of leaves twisting and twirling up high.
It's fall! It's fall!
I pull on my coat and jump into my boots.
I'm ready to go out and play.
I run out the door and am instantly covered with leaves.
This is the best day ever!
