There's something blowing in on the chilly night air. You can't stop them, and soon they will surround you. Some will rejoice and look for them everywhere, while some will weep and gnash their teeth. What are they?
Hey guys! Nature is really getting in our faces around now! Today it rained hard all morning so that small rivers ran down the road. And autumn is arriving for me in the U.S., which means cooler air and changing leaves. Why don't you read a fun poem about the lively rhythm of autumn?
Beautiful red flowers just appeared in our yard. We've never planted them but they pop up every year. I don't know their name, but I think knowing would take away part of the wonder. It's too dark to take a picture right now but I did write a poem about them:

As part of my challenge for the "Newbie Merit Badge Project" , I want to tell you about my favorite season. That is a very difficult question. My automatic response is usually summer, just because I'm so cold all the time and going outside in summer is the one surefire way to warm up. However, the other seasons have their charms...
Fall is when the leaves change, which is beautiful. I also go out and buy sweaters (my favorite article of clothing) and boots, which is fun. My favorite color is orange, and I get to see it everywhere since it's the decorating color of autumn! And I die for pumpkin spice lattes, apple cider, and pumpkin pies.
Winter does not have much going for it, due to my hatred of cold temperatures. But it does get very cozy when it snows outside and I can curl up on the couch with hot chocolate and a book. And writing poems about snowflakes is fun. I'm getting excited about it in spite of myself! (Another plus: mosquitoes are DEAD. Huge bonus.)
Spring is tricky. You think it's getting warmer and you let down your guard, then BAM a cold snap. But hey, there are pretty flowers, and I love seeing the trees bud and bloom. But then again, there's the allergies...yuck!
Summer is hot, summer is humid. What else is there to say? I don't go swimming much. I get only a slight tan. But I do love that heat, baby! (In a different location or time period without air conditioning, I would probably think differently. But we rarely get above 100 degrees fahrenheit here, usually around 90.)
I have to choose a favorite. Autumn wins! It's the sweaters, boots, holidays, leaves, and special foods that win me over. And it's not too cold yet.
