Fall Sneaks In

Regina Puckett


Lighting bonfires amid falling leaves

Wearing sweaters and flannel sleeves

Roasting marshmallows and hotdogs

Hearing the north wind asking for fireplace logs

Watching Trick or Treaters bring in the frost

As the Headless Horseman seeks what was lost

Our hot summer slips away and fall sneaks in

While we carve out our pumpkin’s sly grin
