AUTUMN A brisk chill in the air Reminds me Christmas will soon be here My thoughts take a leap to Jamaica To warmth and family and friendly gala. The dark red of the trees Remind me of sorrel drink And the yellows of bright shining sun For a moment there is a longing But the beauty of nature’s palette Takes my attention away To focus on the colours of autumn As the trees make their awesome display Some trees are covered in Yellow Sometimes they are totally red There’s variety of colours as leaves change their green One never knows what is ahead. The Evergreens feature, not to be outdone And the Holly’s shiny leaves give everyone a run But the assortment of colours brings warmth to my heart And I feel peaceful as I enjoy nature’s Art. A single leaf trembles, hanging just by a thread I watch as it flutters down to its bed A wind whips up and leaves fall like rain The scenery changes again and again Reflections of autumn show the rhythms of life Of circles and seasons and daylight and night As trees become bare and winter sets in, Until spring emerges and new life begins. Winsome Miller-Rowe
