Example # 1

Pretty Leaves
Pretty leaves are falling down,
Green, orange, yellow and brown
Here comes one colored red,
It landed on my head!

Example # 2

In autumn when the trees are brown
The little leaves come tumbling down
They do not make the slightest sound
But lie so quietly on the ground
Until the wind comes puffing by
And blows them off towards the sky

Example # 3

Leaves in the Fall come tumbling down,
Scarlet and yellow, russet and brown,
Leaves in the garden are swept in a heap,
The trees are ready for sleep.
