Fall is here. In an upcoming edition of Coast Weekend, readers’ fall-themed poems will be featured as a celebration of the new season.

To participate, share your poem by emailing aevans@dailyastorian.com by Monday, Oct. 26. Include your name and town of residence along with your favorite fall poems. Please do not send in more than two poems for consideration.

Poems should capture the essence of the season.
