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.
