It’s Autumn!

    “It’s Autumn!” Friend, Nov. 2006, 37

    It’s Autumn!

    Autumn leaves falling round,

    Touching earth without a sound.

    (Spin index finger slowly to the floor.)

    Pumpkins smiling,

    Eyes aglow.

    (Raise arms forming a circle around head, then smile.)

    Animals scurry to and fro,

    Gathering food before winter’s snow.

    (Pretend to be a small animal gathering food on the ground.)

    Thankful families gather round,

    Harvest blessings here abound.

    (Bow head and fold arms in prayer.)

    All these things help me to know,

    It’s autumn!

    (Spread out arms and declare, “It’s autumn!”)
