Community Storyboard Weekly Prompt; Autumn

5 Comments

My Community Storyboard friends are having some issues with the fall season. I decided it was time to bring out one of my Season’s Keepers and Wonders to cheer them up a bit. I hope Fallina helps. Please excuse the lack of formatting…grrr.

Fallina; Keeper of the Leaves

Fallina, Fallina she paints away the green;

her pallet of colors is from red to brown,

and every shade between.

Long ago, she used to pout up a storm, when the leaves fell from the branches,

but now Fallina, with her pallet and brushes, has leaf-painting dances!

Others in the forest were unhappy with the changes too,

they simply had no idea of what they could do.

There was no place to hide when the birds found the need,

and the chipmunks and squirrels found no nuts and no seeds.

Then along came Fallina with her paint dances to cheer up their day.

They had fun splashing colors; they could now wait for May.

With everyone happy The Gatherer came out with a smile,

Putting twigs for the birds, and nuts for squirrels into a humongous pile!

Fallina, Fallina she paints away the green.

Now, everywhere you turn smiles can be seen.

  1. I’m fine with Fallina. She seems cool and friendly. It’s her crazy cousin Flubert that I wish would stay away each year. 😉

  2. I love what Fallina did with the borders of your web page! She’s a great artist. Are you related?

    • You are so funny, Susan! I’m pretty sure that it is artistically all wrong, but it made me smile to go all pumpkin on us:>: I’ll prob settle down in a day or two.
      Thanks for hanging out here and there.
      Happy Pumpkin:>)
