Framed resplendently against the backdrop of a chilled and greying sky

Stands a strong and sturdy oak tree, beautiful

Yet shuddering defiantly the bleak raw wind that blows around its mighty form

As Autumn casts its magic spell, the branches flutter

Holding on tentatively to those reaching arms is a myriad of brightly coloured jewels

And while the strong boughs tremble in a very noble fashion

A wondrous shower of these golden gems

Are liberated gently from their Summer perches

With a hushed ending to sunnier months long gone

A riotous cluster of varying shades are spilt from the once green hues

Welcoming the pre-ordained arrival of colder months


Our mood and joyous smiles broaden as we spy a tiny grey squirrel

Foraging speedily in the undergrowth lay deeply beneath our feet

He is oblivious to our silent presence as he continues searching

For the tasty nuggets required for his provisions till next year


We tug at our flapping coat collars and button them firmly in place

Then draw each other closer

So close that even the wind, in its blustering fashion

Cannot separate our warmth of feelings

Every few steps of our stroll finds a new vision to stop and stare

In awe of Nature's Mother
