fall folk artAutumn Train
by Mildred D. Shacklett

Autumn is a train that travels
From Summerland to Winterville —
Mellow apples, yellow pumpkins
And sweet brown nuts its freight cars fill;

Flying fast its hot breath changes
The green of leaves to red and gold,
And when it pulls up at the station
Then children know ’twill soon grow cold.
