HAPPY FALL

Autumn came and rang my bell;
she said, "Come out and play!
I'll frolic with you for a spell
before I go away.

"We'll build some haystacks in the field,
and find some pumpkins, too.
Your mom can cook a tasty pie
before the day is through!

"Oh, see the scarecrow waving there!
I think he wants to play!
He seems to smile without a care
on this great autumn day."

Now you may think that I tell fibs --
because I'm only five --
but I declare and even swear
that scarecrow came alive!

He took my hand and danced with me;
we played and had a ball,
and then he whispered in my ear:
"Please have a happy fall!"
