Summer's shot

As summer ends and autumn calls

The leaves turn red and start to fall

The air's still warm 'til sunset light

But then a chill invades the night


It's jackets on and jumpers too

A scarf, a wrap, a button-through

You'll not get far on evening strolls

Unless you guard against the cold


How fast the summer passes by

How quick the change to autumn skies

The garden chairs are looking dull

The parasol has lost it's pull


The garden lights are looking tired

Solar homes where spiders hide

Some are lit and some are not

Some are broken, summer's shot
