It's Fall!!!

Fall is my favorite time of year at home. The leaves are so beautiful particularly in the morning. :)

The below is the poem "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer. I love it and I am trying to become more familiar with it since it will be Gideon's first poem to memorize later this year. Isn't it beautiful? :)

THINK that I shall never see 
A poem lovely as a tree. 
A tree whose hungry mouth is prest 
Against the sweet earth's flowing breast; 
A tree that looks at God all day,         5
And lifts her leafy arms to pray; 
A tree that may in summer wear 
A nest of robins in her hair; 
Upon whose bosom snow has lain; 
Who intimately lives with rain.  10
Poems are made by fools like me, 
But only God can make a tree
