(Sophie)
 
"Come, little leaves," said the Wind one day.
"Come over the meadows with me and play;
Put on your dresses of red and gold,
For summer is gone and the days grow cold."
Dancing and whirling the little leaves went,
Winter had called them, and they were content,
Soon fast asleep in their earthy beds,
The snow laid a soft mantle over their heads.


("Come, Little Leaves" by George Cooper)

A darling little poem! I've often compared the leaves, being swept along by the wind, to small animals, running hither and yond.

I hadn't thought of or seen that beautiful poem in years, and I had to recite it from memory once in grade school. That will sure cause it to stick with ya! Anyway, I love it now and I'm glad you posted it with the lovely model! :D

Oh too funny. She looks like she is saying, "hurry up Mom and get the pic so I can get these leaves off my face."

Have a wonderful weekend.

Poor Sophia! Getting tackled by leaves. Most of ours have fallen but still a few trees are holding onto theirs.
