This Autumn Night

Written by: Francine Roberts

Candles are lit
lightly scenting the room.
Fireplace glow
dispels all the gloom.

Its raining outside
with a pounding beat.
The cat is curled up
content on her seat.

There is much to love
about an Autumn day
even when its too wet 
to go out and play.

I am relaxed
with a book and cat's purring.
Outside may be storming,
in here nothing's stirring.

The only thing missing
on this wet, windy night
is someone to share it,
that is my plight.
