Autumn’s Blessings

Sea  of willow leaves and scattered oak

Crisp crunching beneath scuffling feet

Sun dappling through a bracing wind

Bright golden, though devoid of heat


Dank leaf-litter raising acrid scents

Soft mushrooms pulsing quietly by

Jagged brambles shorn of juicy fruits

Ragged scuts of clouds on ice blue sky

Birds darting in the chill-dipped air

Moles tunnelling the yet soft earth

Squirrels gathering in frantic fear

Cows fattening for all their worth

Eyes golden drenched in bonfire hues

Last rambles ere the nights draw in

Hearts warmed with thoughts of burning fires

Soft dreams of evenings safe within
