*Picture-Little House in the Big Woods

The days were growing shorter
and the nights were cooler.
One night Jack Frost passed by,
and in the morning
there were bright colors
here and there
among the
green leaves of
The Big Woods.
Then all the leaves
stopped being green.
They were
yellow and scarlet
and crimson and golden and brown.
~Laura Ingalls Wilder
