This is the first poem I ever wrote. Wrote it for an assignment in 4th grade. This is from memory, so it might not be word for word what I wrote in 4th grade. It's short and simple, but I still think it's worth including with my poetry.
Autumn leaves come falling down
Slowly falling through the air
Soon at last they reach the ground
Now they only sit there.
-- Geoff Strickler
-- circa 1975
