An Ode to Autumn
Updated: Oct 22, 2020
You are a splash of earthly colour across a sea of green,
as the warmth of summer fades on before the morning frost comes in.
It's time to bake all things cinamon and nut, and perhaps a taste of pumpkin spice ? - that is always extra nice !
Sweets and other treats galore decorate shop windows,
Waiting for ghouls and ghosts and all things scary for a night full of spooky.
You often bring the start of school, university or a first job,
and with that comes excitement, joy or maybe none of the above...
The sight of sparks flying in the sky dance like shooting stars; such is the celebration of the past,
with bonfires and hot mugs of Coco, you are always such a blast.
Before you near your end, I think of all the good you've brought,
for the time may come when I miss the cool breeze and the colour of those autumn leaves.
