Today’s poem comes to us from Luke Nelson, our first Friday’s Poet contributor. Luke is 17 years old and living in Visalia, California, where he attends University Preparatory High School. He loves writing poetry and short stories when he gets the opportunity, especially for the school magazine.
Drifting drowsily down
The leaf lands lightly on the ground
Striding swiftly straight
The deer with his graceful gait
Chilling cowardly cold
Noses being nipped and trolled
Thank you for reading this poem—and give it an out-loud read it if you haven’t already. It’s the perfect poem to read as we step into the fall season of change and chilly weather. Leave comments for Luke below!
