Fall Tradition--By Russell Sivey--United States

Fall Tradition

The fall of the year approaches
with a joy that compares to none
and the children all jump in the puddles
with smiles on their faces to boot.

The temperature is quite perfect
that the sun shines on lovely days
enlightens each students eyes to dollars
awaiting the day after school.

The greatest time of the year comes
with the cool weather and the breeze
Halloween shines and brings happiness too
fun sure reigns this time of the year.

Time to be your favorite ghost,
a time to become that hero
that you’ve been looking to be for awhile
and save the day from all the gloom.

You get to receive your candy
that you have waited all year for
go with your friends to some of your neighbors
and enjoy this fall tradition!
