“For summer is past and the days grow cold.”

Here’s a little poem my son wrote in Kindergarten.  I submitted it to Highlights for Children magazine, and they published it.  I think it captures the essence of settling in on a fall evening.

Evening is the time when the sun sets.

Evening is when fathers come home.

Evening is the time

When children come inside

And the family is all snugly home.
