AUTUMN EVENINGS

 

A shivering grey darkness forms earlier now

As the summer months have slipped away

Long gone the hot afternoons when we sat in the park

Spreading our picnic over the table-cloth

Long gone the radiant flowers and squealing children chasing ball

For now we enter the season the Americans name Fall

 

My favourite season by far

The greenness of the landscape now ripened to fullest gold

Spangled leaves sprinkling down as tall trees cast their coats

The colours are a veritable feast

Not unlike an artists pallet

Where once stood nature’s truest greens

Now softly exchange to deep burnt orange and all shades therein

Gentle yellows and rich aubergine cascade from high above

Forming the thickest blanket beneath our shoe

 

Some wider than the span of a hand float down

And lay upon each other on the cold grass

Making a crunching crackling sound as we tread

While ruby red berries festoon from on high

Draping above us like velvet curtains

 

Home to a lazy rest by the open fireside

Coal spitting tiny bullets of flame into the hearth

Which quickly die and then return to black

 

Snuggled under a cream woollen throw

We sit sipping mugs of hot chocolate

Leaving us with warm blush to our cheeks

Contented,

At peace
