Fall Poetry!

Once you've been inspired by other poets...

It's time to write your own poetry! Check out this GREAT set of prompts for writing poetry about fall.

"And all at once, summer collapsed into fall" – Oscar Wilde

"As the nights draw longer and the days get colder, most people start mourning the end of summer — except for book-lovers. Because book-lovers know something that the rest of the world doesn't: fall is the best season for reading. So instead of feeling sad that the hot weather is coming to an end, prepare to welcome fall in style — with a house full of books."

Emma Oulton Oct. 10, 2017

Mmmm... soup is good food, especially in fall!
