Hazel Autumn Leaf

We were so excited to find an example of a hazel leaf on a walk to the bookstore during an autumn rain shower.

The Autumn Leaves by Wes Magee

In autumn

the trees wave in the wind

and the leaves come tumbling





Here they come,

hundreds and thousands of leaves

in yellow, red,




chocolate brown.
