You’ve never fallen in autumn leaves—
Felt them crunch beneath your knees—
Reds and greens and pinks and golds—
Curves and straights and veiny folds?
You’ve never held a rake’s long pole—
Sunk its teeth in grasses ole—
Spotted with scattered leaves the rake—
Gathers together in piles you make?
You’ve never witnessed a cold heavy wind
Dispersing leaves from piles they're in
Like soft white dandelions floating anew
Held near pink lips belting kerchoo!?
A bit of frustration may first stir you up
Repeatedly raking the inverted cup
But as the leaf piles grow—again—foot by foot
You forgive whistling winds chaotic boot
Raking leaf piles—
Whether once, twice, or thrice
By and large leads to pleasure
That makes you feel nice.
Most of all—
From your heels to your chin!

Thomas the Tank Engine
Blue Railroad Car
Thomas and Friends
Large Beach Towel
Children love watching trials and tribulations
of Thomas the Tank Engine along with his train
friends Henry, Gordon, twins Annie and
Clarabel, Bash, Butch, James, Rosie, and the
rest. But trains cannot run along tracks without
direction so let us not leave out Sir Topham
Hatt the trusty railway controller. No
program keeps children on the edges
of their seats while bringing as much
adventure or as many mishaps as
they experience watching
Thomas and his railroad gang.
Here's a nice long Thomas the Tank Engine
towel that adds pleasure to swimming and bathing!
