Sibylle Von Olfers - The Root Children - Page 9 - Autumn

Published by Franklin Watts in 1978. Verse by Nanette Newman


Now Summer is ending,

And Earth Mother calls:

"Quick, children, before

The last crumpled leaf falls."

The children come running,

The tree shakes its head,

"Till next year," says Earth Mother,

"now all back to bed."
