Swirling Leaves of Autumn’s Wind


Autumnal Variation

Swirling Leaves of Autumn’s Wind

Swirling leaves of autumn’s wind

Fly and dance in circles,

Levitating from the ground

They dance around your ankles.

Rush indoors, escape the blast

Of whipping, churning air.

Close the door, ensure it’s fast

Time to settle in your chair.

But windows rattle, chimneys blow,

And draughts creep up your legs.

Flick a switch, make heating flow

Then finish the coffee dregs.

Autumn can be bleak or warm

With dank or sunny spells

Who can say what is the norm?

Oh yes! The weatherman tells…

About caroleparkes

My husband calls me a butterfly because I flit from one hobby to another. Apart from being a wife for 52 years, a mother of three sons, and a grandmother, I'm also an author, genealogist, amateur artist, a lover of most needlecrafts, and occasional poet. Of the above, my most enduring interest has been writing and I hope to be doing it well into old age.
