Riding the Wind


Sometimes on a windy day,

I close my eyes and fly away.

I float with leaves upon the breeze,

then skitter about the lofty trees.

I hop and skip from yard to yard

and frolic down the boulevard;

until, at last, my journey through,

I find my way back home to you.

Those pictures brought back memories from childhood books..so cute. I love the poem and it sure fits this time of year. We're suppose to get some snow next week...I'm not ready...really I'm not! I'll take falling leaves over falling snow any day.
