The Scarecrow

The scarecrow stands
With hanging hands,
Beside the farmer's stile.
He scares the crow and jay away,
With just a painted smile.

October Leaves
October leaves are lovely
They rustle when I run
Sometimes I make a heap
And jump in them for fun
Autumn leaves float quietly down
And form a carpet on the ground.
But when those leaves are stepped upon,
Listen for the crackling sound.

Rain of Leaves
by Aileen Fisher
It's raining big,
It's raining small,
It's raining autumn leaves
In fall.
It's raining gold
And red and brown
As autumn leaves
Come raining down.
It's raining everywhere
I look.
It's raining bookmarks
On my book!

October's the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down -
October is red
And golden and brown.

Love Fall
I love fall! Fall is exciting.
It's apples and cider.
It's an airborne spider.
It's pumpkins in bins.
It's burrs on dog's chins.
It's wind blowing leaves.
It's chilly red knees.
It's nuts on the ground.
It's a crisp dry sound.
It's green leaves turning
And the smell of them burning.
It's clouds in the sky.
It's fall. That's why...
I love fall.

(Sung to Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

All join hands and circle round
While we watch the leaves fall down.
See them twirling to the ground
See them whirling all around.
See them skipping here and there
See them flipping in the air.
Autumn leaves so peacefully
Falling, falling from the tree.

The month is October,
The air's turning cold.
The leaves are all changing
to red and to gold.
The month is October,
And up in the sky,
The birds are all traveling,
And south they will fly!
The month is October,
There's so much to do:
Play football and hockey,
And pick apples, too!
The month is October,
And ghosts I have seen.
They're out trick-or-treating,
It's now Halloween!

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate.
First one said, "Oh my, it's getting late."
Second one said, "There's a frost in the air."
The third one said, "But we don't care."
The fourth one said, "Let's run and run and run."
The fifth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
"Oo-oo," went the wind and out went the light,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
