The north wind came along one day...actually today

The north wind came along one day,
So strong and full of fun;
He called the leaves down from the trees
And said run, children, run;
They came in red or yellow dress,
In shaded green and brown,
And all that short November day
He chased them round the town.
They ran in crowds, they ran alone,
They hid behind the trees,
The north wind laughing found them there
And called: “No stopping please.”
But when he saw them tired out
And huddled in a heap,
He softly said, “Goodnight my dears,
Now let us go to sleep.”

from "Autumn" by Wynstones Press

The leaves are sleeping today.
