Leaves of Autumn: A Collection of Poems
by Debbie Milan
Today's children are often not part of a family unit. The next generation lives many miles from parents, and needs to be connected with their roots. For this reason, the poems are written so that others may know of another time and the richness of rural life in Wisconsin.
There's something for everyone in the book. The poems, written from the heart, reflect Christian values, German heritage, personal experiences, and historic events. Several poems are for children. The book covers a time span of over 100 years.
