Since tomorrow is the First Day of Autumn, I decided to do something fun! I made these leaf-shaped sugar cookies and will package a few in a clear bag and tie on the following poem. I plan to deliver them tomorrow! Feel free to use the poem to bring an autumn welcome to someone you know as well! I wrote the poem while fixing dinner the other night as I could not find a poem that seemed exactly what I wanted to say! I thought another fun idea would be to fix a fall-breakfast for tomorrow morning. Choose a fall-theme menu and create a new tradition, by making the same thing each year on the First Day of Autumn! I have a maple leaf shaped pancake mold - so I think I'll make those for our new tradition!
Watch as the leaves gently fall down
Red, orange, gold and even brown.
Pumpkins, corn and apples too
A sign that summer now is through.
The colors, the smells, the cooling weather,
A cozy home ~ there’s nothing better!
This is the season for giving thanks
For great bounty, we celebrate.
Cider, soup or a pie in the oven,
This wonderful season ~ we call Autumn!
