Poem: Fall in New England

Fall in New England

Fall is such a beautiful time of year

There are plenty of sites to see here

Leaves with bright colors orange, yellow, and red

Signaling a change that the year is near the end

But fall is also a time of new beginnings

It is a time to start to learn new things

A time to look at the world in a different way

A time to learn new strategies to handle each day

Let’s take this time of change

And focus on new ways to think

Let’s give individuals with challenges a new look and rearrange

And find a common link

Fall reminds us to turn over new leaves

To think about starting new goals to achieve

I call on the world to change perceptions

And give all of us a new reception

I want to make new friends and create a new start

I like to develop new relationships with an open heart

I hope to be accepted for the person that I am

So people can understand a true autistic man

— Scott Lentine, a smart, poetic and inspiring 26-year-old man who happens to have autism.
