Life Goes On

Written by: Daniel Cheeseman

Darker green, even darker clouds
Misty velvet the summer shrouds

And the suns kiss a sweet au revoir
Golds and browns now sit the hour

Cooler winds and falling leaves
Stubble fields and swaying trees

The cattle's slow and heavy gait
The squirrel stores for winters fate

Arthritic joints they warn of cold
The Holly shows its berries bold

And to the frost the Robin sings
As the Ravens caw reality brings

From the north clouds will come
Merciless, and death for some 

Boots and wellies at the door
Life goes on as before
