Yes. Here goes:
Autumn, fall, back end: it comes in many guises;
A whole year sometimes within one season.
One week it's sizzling, next one it's freezing
But nothing can hide the fact that the sun rises
Later each day and sets a little earlier
So that a glass of wine in evening sun
Becomes a fireside cup of tea. We wonder
Where the summer went - and as we curl up
Next to our chosen source of heat, we start
To exclaim that Christmas will soon be here -
As if a penance to be born, not cheer
Us up in darkest days... Come on, take heart,
Don't mind the doleful thoughts these comments bring:
For at this rate - yes - it will soon be spring.
