Fall Poem

Poem About Catching Leaves

I teach, and one day on playground supervision I heard a student yell at the top of her lungs, "It's good luck to catch a leaf!" I watched the kids running and dancing as the leaves were falling. They had so much fun with the leaves. It was a very memorable, beautiful moment.

The Magic In The Moment

Published on September 2015

The wind began to blow
And shook the trees
Heads turned up in unison
Witnessing a season of change

The leaves were freed from their branches
Floating and swinging through the air
Painting the sky with golden colors
Dancing their way to the ground

The wind blew again
And the trees shook
Whispers in the wind:
"It's good luck to catch a leaf!"

Searching and turning
Arms opening wide
Hands held high
Watching the leaves dance in the sky

They swirled, turned and swept me
Off my feet
Dodging and scooping
The magic in the moment
