Autumn leaves are falling,
The wind is softly calling,
Whispering, whistling, and whirling,
Dancing with their friends, the leaves.
Orange, red, and yellow
They flutter soft and mellow
Like ballerinas twirling round
Floating lightly to the ground.
I see you, pretty autumn,
Dressing trees in shades of fall,
Marigolds and pumpkins join you
Making smiles upon us all.
“A Name Forever Unknown”
By: Desiderio Walker
A name forever unknown
But oh how they have grown
No, no my name I cannot tell
A name that I cannot sell
Anonymous is all yet none
Anonymous is forever young
Anonymous alters itself
Anonymous is still stealth
Anonymous forever changing
Anonymous will never be the same
Anonymous is yet to blame
For both everything and nothing
Original yet it always sinks
Anonymous is what we are
Anonymous is as far as the eye can see
Anonymous is what we breathe
To be anonymous is what we seek
To live in silence at its peak
We who are anonymous are among you
Us who society makes blue
Anonymous is like the Sun
Everywhere but never at just one

Thankful for a country where living isn’t surviving.
Thankful for a place where children can be raised in peace.
Thankful for a nation where I can be whoever I am called to be.
Thankful for a fortress where I know I am safe.
Thankful for a land where I can spread my beliefs.
Thankful for area where I can meet new people and cultures.
Thankful for a location where I can be friends with everyone.
Thankful for a region where I can live where I please.
Thankful for a state where I have opportunities to excel.
Thankful for a city where I can get an education and pursue my dreams.
Thankful for a town where I can grow up in loving people around me.
Thankful for home where my life can unravel.
Thankful for the World
By: Sarah Paschal
Thankful for the people who make up the world,
make it so much brighter so others can soar.
The dreaming, the inventors to create though their fails,
The curious, the explorers to first forge the trails.
The patient, the teachers to teach us life’s ways,
The wisest, the parents to help us through each day.
The callused, the farmers to sow all our meals,
The confident, the leaders to keep peace and make deals.
The uplifting, the friends to urge us to go on,
The inspiring, the artists to heal souls with their songs.
The creators, the authors to give us an escape,
The bravest, the soldiers to ensure our freedoms safe.
The listening, the animals to help share the load,
The future, the children to take roles down the road.
The giant community that we all can help build,
The encouraging, the supporting, the beautiful, the world.
