FC: One Spectacular Fall Day Photography & Poetry by CJ Carter
1: Fall 2010 This book was made for you by Carol Carter, a native Nebraskan and Paraeducator at West 5th Elementary School. I love to be outside enjoying nature when ever possible and hope this book will inspire you to stop and enjoy all that nature provides for you each day. | I stopped one October day after crossing the South Platte River near Ogallala Nebraska. The Fall colors just called me to stop for a moment and enjoy them. I happened to have my camera with me, so I stopped and strolled along the river bank to capture these breath taking photos. I just had to share them with you. That night I was inspired to write the poetry to go along with these beautiful pictures. Take a moment to slow down and enjoy nature around you.
3: I stopped for a moment one spectacular Fall day
4: to listen to the river,
5: the leaves, | and the sunshine play. | the leaves,
6: the leaves glowed and shimmered,
7: the | sun | went down | as
8: and a few Fall leaves, silently float to the ground.
10: As the gentle breeze blew the leaves danced around, as if they knew that they'd been found,
11: the sun, the river, and the leaves at play.
13: Oh what I would have missed that day,
14: If I hadn't stopped to hear nature say;
15: Slow down and listen! | Watch nature play!
16: Capture a special moment every day!
17: Renew your spirit.
18: Take time to pray!
19: Breathe in fresh air, each beautiful day.
20: Listen to the river, rolling along, quietly singing it's bubbly song.
21: Watch the leaves dance, having fun in the sun, | showing their best before the day's done.
22: Enjoy the sunset, it's color and beauty, silently boasting with brilliant duty, each day before it fades away.
23: And the full moon shines down to finish our day.
24: Then hurry back on your busy way, Renewed in spirit because you stopped today...
25: to listen to the river, and watch the leaves play, as the sun went down, One Spectacular Fall Day.
