The First Signs of Autumn

Autumn my quiet friend



My quiet and gentle associate

Comes unannounced

At summer’s fading


My generous, giving companion

Ripens richly

At summer’s desertion


My wildly, colourful acquaintance

Decorates vividly

At summer’s demise

Autumn’s back!! it seems to have a arrived quite suddenly, but oh my is it beautiful! I went out for a walk the other evening and the fields were warmed by a milky peach sun. Each day the trees that line my journey to work, turn a deeper shade of bronze and the year feels as if it is closing down for a winter rest. The farmers are busy ploughing their fields and now they are rich brown, instead of the yellow gold from a couple of weeks ago. It is such a wonderful time of the year to enjoy warm colour.
