Our Autumnal Week: Savouring the Season

Rainy days means stuck inside
Noses pressed at windows, blue eyes wide
Watching, jumping at the sound
Of thunder rumbling all around.

Autumn baking, little hands knead
mixed spice biscuits, little mouths to feed
Cancelled trips to the pumpkin patch
Instead we bake a Pumpkin Muffin batch!

Autumn colours everywhere,
Red, yellow, orange, leaves to share
Paintbrushes out, the colours of fall
As little girl creations plaster the walls.

Kicking through leaves in welly boots,
The school run seems a longer route
When all's slowed down by autumn fun
As little girls jump and little girls run!
