The Wall #15

Jenny Matlock

Jenny!  You wicked girl!  This week's challenge is to write a lyrical rhyme to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star with 32 words including the prompt In the Autumn.  Click the Saturday Centus button to join the fun and read other rhymes.

In a effort to write a continuing story with each new prompt, I've been adding to my story, The Wall for 14 weeks.  Last time I wrote:

~ She said the recipe had been handed down from her grandmother who baked bread and pizza in an outdoor oven.
As we sat there sharing stories, a boy of about 12 years came running down the hall, slowing to a walk as he neared my open door. He stopped outside and smiled impishly.
"Mother, may I ride my bike to Tommy's house?” After questions about homework and chores were answered to her satisfaction, she sent him off with a warning to be home before dark.
We laughed as he dashed down the hall and out the door with wings on his heels.~

Here's my contribution today...

~He sang this verse;

"Swirling, Twirling, down they fall,
Gently sweeping over all.
Spreading color everywhere,
Piling up with nary a care.
In the Autumn, leaves alight
Painting such a lovely sight!"~
