~ Inclement ~
---- Autumn ----
Billowing canvas, of latent menace,
Silently brooding, over fences and trellis.
Freshly cut grass, resounds the chink of a spade;
Breathing in deep, as the seconds are weighed.
Bark of a hound, peeking desperate, warm rays;
A final farewell, from fine short, summer days?
Waywardly reaching under sky, overcast;
An overgrown yard, struggles free, at last.
Insects seek haven, from the chill soon to come,
As nature prepares, to withdraw from the fun.
Corpulent cat, lazily drinking the day;
Enjoying her stretch, miaow has nothing to say.
Moment by moment, one is feeling alive,
Whilst observing nows' antics, as he frets, and thrives....
---- Winter ----
Undulating trills, starling on the wing;
Ushers in the day, warbles, chirps, and sings.
Snow-capped rooves, branches caked in white;
Melodic drips of melted ice, are thawing from the night.
Next, on scene, glides a squawking crow;
Stirring from his sleep, as the cold winds blow.
Rattling bottles, glossy doorsteps chink;
Blustering flakes, alight an urban link.
Rhythmic beat, from a distant hammer;
Diurnal sounds, ferry noisy clamour.
Cotton-wool clouds steal a winter sun;
Summer's warm welcome, hides from everyone.
Car doors slamming, blaring radios jamming;
Whimpering hounds, bay a sunshine famine.
Stiff-white sheets, shield the vision, up ahead;
Gust-charged breeze whistles, "Stay in bed."
Back gates flapping, wakes a fat dog napping;
Machines, in labour, prompts a sneezing neighbour.
Frost-glazed pond, deigns the geese to surf
Slippy orange, webbed feet, waddle hallowed turf.
Melancholic pawns, of the commonplace, who
Must patiently await, for a summertime face.
