LEAVES OF LAUGHTER
Sunshine autumn leaves of smiles|
Wrapping up in autumn breeze,
Cold the wind but welcome
Playing between the swaying trees.
The children throw the leaves
Up into the air for fun,
Bringing happiness and joy
To each child's face everyone.
The cheeky innocence so pure
Brings such happiness to me,
Thinking back on childhood days
They are so wonderful and free.
Freedom's picture oh so bright
Sunny days in playgrounds spent,
In laughter's house of childhood
We wonder why and where they went.
But on this day of fun and laughter
Memories come flooding through,
As I feel the joy of happiness
I am a child on this day too.
