Autumn 2012

4 Sep

While the wind has a tantrum

jealous raindrops pelt down

forcing the glorious leaves

from their place of honour

onto the waiting lawn below

they will soon be relegated

to bags and compost bins

but the have not yet

had their last hurrah

for tomorrow the autumn sun

will light up the colourful yard

children in caps and mittens

will make piles for jumping in

and perhaps if one is lucky

it will be carried indoors

pressed between two pages

of encyclopedia Britannica

to be treasured forever
