Autumn Mood

Autumn mood
Summer had barely started
just showed up and said hello
didn’t stay long enough
to spread its warm beams
to make us feel alive
and full of beans

made a big entrance
like a sharp dressed man
with a smug face
drawing in all the attention
the colours of the leaves
so vivid so bright

I’m taking it all in
A curious squirrel
eyeing me up
whilst burying its food stock
A timid fox
coming out of its
hiding place
sniffing up the Autumn air
and watching the world go by.
