Come, little leaves, Said the wind one day;

Come to the meadows
With me and play.
Put on your dresses
Of red and gold;
For summer is past,
And the days grow cold.

Soon as the leaves
Heard the wind's loud call,
Down they came fluttering,
One and all.

 Over the meadows
They danced and flew,
All singing the soft
Little songs they knew.
Dancing and flying,
The leaves went along,
Til Winter called them
To end their sweet song.
Soon, fast asleep
In their earthy beds,
The snow lay a coverlet
O'er their heads.
Words by George Cooper

I have never heard this poem and I love it! Our leaves have just begun to fall a little here and there, no big piles yet for which I am grateful. I prefer them to sing their little songs in the trees for a bit longer:>)
