Misty (Monday Poem)

by Shirley Hughes

Mist in the morning,
Raw and nippy.
Leaves on the sidewalk,
Wet and slippy.
Sun on fire
Behind the trees,
Muddy boots,
Muddy knees.

Shop windows,
Lighted early.
Soaking grass,
Dewy, pearly,
Red, lemon,
Orange, and brown --
Silently, softly,
The leaves float down.

from Out and About: A First Book of Poems by Shirley Hughes, 2015, Candlewick
