The nights are drawing in
Sun doesnt last as long.
Need a light throw on my shoulders
not hearing so much bird song.
Summer is singing its finale,
The strength of the sun is on its wain
Autumn is around the corner
Autumnal hues which fill the scene.
Balmy summer nights are heavenly
Sitting on the swing in the porch
Glass of wine by my side
Fireflies are my emergency torch.
Perfect after a day in the sun
strolling along a sandy beach
watching children having fun,
perfection for me is just out of reach.
