AUTUMN JOY... DIGITAL WHISPER's AUTUMN LEAVES CHALLENGE...
I raked the leaves on our front lawn;
It took all afternoon.
I started at ’round half past one
and said, “I’ll be done soon.”
But once I saw how more leaves fell
Each time I made a pile,
I quickly saw this outdoor chore
Was going to take a while.
And so I did what my dad said
A winner does to win:
I studied that great pile of leaves,
And then I jumped right in.
