Autumn Is Now Upon Us

Autumn is upon us

the wind is getting cold,

It is time for our wellies or so I am told.

As no more sunshiny days do we get

only one's pouring of rain,

so no need for us to go sunbathing

for a tan we will not gain.

The leaves on the tree's are changing

from the greens to magnificent reds,

with yellows and oranges

which turns people's heads.

As children go out and play

in the rain and the mud,

and do what they know best

as only children should.

In a season of tomfoolery

for all of your delight,

of Halloween and trick and treating

and of Bonfire night.

As the farmer's harvest their crops

plough their land

and gain what they have sown through the year,

We all prepare ourselves for the next few months

as autumn is upon us, and winter is near.
