Summer Fades Into Fall

Oct 7, 2017

"... and all at once, summer collapsed into fall." -Oscar Wilde

September heralded autumn and

prepared for a grand showing . All

noted nature's bountiful brilliance at

fall's season-changing time. Once

zephyrs changed course, summer

found its niche and collapsed

its humid hold, leading life into

a golden, pumpkin-spice fall.

(The above poem is based on the Golden Shovel format. The last word of each line is from the Oscar Wilde quote.)



Summer may have collapsed into fall but I'm wondering if my trip to Tuscon will offer autumn delights or still linger in summer heat. Wondering will continue at the Wonderopolis roundtable team's presentation, On the Wonder Pathway to Empower Learners and Amplify Voice, at the NCFL 2017 Conference, October 9-11, 2017. I can't wait to join my team. Stay tuned for more news.
