Remembering Autumn…

Feb 4, 2023


Soporific seasons sneak up on us

While we yet bask in summer’s afterglow

Minds a-buzzing, hearts aflame

Feet still shuffling to the fading beat

Alas, winter’s early herald stills our fervour

Sprouting gusts which whoo and threaten…

To bare us of all leaves had we them,

Overcoats which suddenly, now clad all men.

Light and Warmth a fading memory,

Grey the haze that sets the days

Hide we must from exterior chills,

We cling our warmth to each other, inside…
