Pride Comes Before an Autumn

AnElephantCant be clever about Autumn
Like the wonderful TheWhyAboutThis
But he is sincere
He wants to make it quite clear
There is no way he is taking the um, mickey

Autumn may fall as all seasons do
Though Fall just never autumns
But colours range
And colors change
Like a thousand fading red suns

Picture this morning a fresh autumn day
In sunny Damperton-upon-Leven
Before long no doubt
Snow will lie round about
Deep and crisp and e-e-ven

But for now it’s blue skies and wisps of white cloud
And trees that are golden and russet
Soon it will not be nice
All hail sleet and ice
So till then let’s not even discuss it

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
