   landing on
   the hopscotch square
   a yellow leaf
                  Joann

   rising creek -
   yellow leaves
   pile in the bend
                     Cindy Zackowitz

   at first singly
   then in threes and fours
   yellow leaves
                  Joseph Kirschner

   
BELOW THIRD PLACE 


   in the forest -
   yellow leaves drift down
   on yellow leaves
                     Alison Williams


      on sole of
      summer sandal-
      yellow leaf
                   R. W. Richardson


         yellow leaf...
         from all those on her grave
             I took you
                         Hugh Waterhouse


              returning it
              with the book I found it in--
              the yellow leaf
                              Dennis H. Dutton


                 solitude ~
                 yellow leaves whisper
                 ancient song
                               Elsie Canfield


                     tree in a clay pot -
                     yellow leaves
                     holding sunlight
                                       Ferris


                          changing direction -
                          a few yellow leaves cling
                          to the windshield
                                             doris kasson


                                morning breeze
                                the calico kitten chases
                                a yellow leaf
                                                ebj


   falling again-
   one yellow leaf
   from the family bible
                          -willard


       sound of wings
       upon slanted light
       a yellow leaf
                      Rob Krevitz


           September first:
           a yellow willow leaf
           twists as it falls
                               Charles Trumbull


              beneath the sycamore
              she reads his letters
                       -yellow leaves
                                       jean king


                yellow leaves
                prostrating before
                a stone Buddha
                                 Gary Steinberg


                   a yellow birch leaf
                   beside the sawhorse -
                   crosscut's jagged teeth
                                             Paul MacNeil


                       buttering toast
                       he watches yellow leaves
                       flutter in sunlight
                                            Paul Blake


   a rusted bike
   hub deep in yellow leaves
           sunlit wall
                        A.C. Missias


      first yellow leaf -
      the last pear has fallen
      on the brown soil
                          -ito


            released to flutter
            and swirl with autumn's breath,
            ginkgo's yellow leaves
                                     Peg Lowmiller


                 sudden shower-
                 crystal droplets
                 on fallen yellow leaves
                                          Sue


                      old sheet music
                      for "September Song" -
                      yellowed leaves
                                       soji


   giggling as they roll
   in the yellow leaves piled high
   Autumn Afternoon
                      Betty


       ardent love in autumn
       brown - ocre - yellow
       leave me for ever
                         emile molhuysen


           yellow leaves
           accumulating
           in the sun's wake
                              Tom


                yellow leaves
                by the white house -- where's my
                other sock?

                    the yellow leaves fall
                    herded down the brick pavement
                    by the autumn wind
                                        Elaine Cleveland


                         his hoary head
                         those yellow leaves, shine
                         on harvest moon
                                          MGSwartout
