    I grew up in Ladue, Mo. where we used to burn our leaves every fall at least until the mid seventies. How I miss the smell of burning leaves...it just does not seem like fall without it.

    'In the other gardens
    And all up the vale,
    From the autumn bonfires
    See the smoke trail!

    Pleasant summer over
    And all the summer flowers,
    The red fire blazes,
    The grey smoke towers.

    Sing a song of seasons!
    Something bright in all!
    Flowers in the summer,
    Fires in the fall!'....R. L. Stevenson
