Just added the final few words and a leaf.  I can't reproduce it here but if you copy the poem and paste into Word and centre it (Ctrl E) it looks quite attractive.

 

Turning the corner, the wind grasps at my collar. 

I am unprepared.

Yesterday the sun was warm, clouds were still.

We shared

A morning coffee out of doors. But now

I go back inside

Pick up the jacket, months unworn

And hide

Within its folds. The time has come

To find

Those warmer clothes tucked

Deep inside

Some drawer.  Don’t be

Deceived

By the fiery colours

Of leaves

🍁

Turning the corner, the wind grasps at my collar. 

I am unprepared.

Yesterday the sun was warm, clouds were still.

We shared

A morning coffee out of doors. But now

I go back inside

Pick up the jacket, months unworn

And hide

Within its folds. The time has come

To find

Those warmer clothes tucked

Deep inside

Some drawer.  Don’t be

Deceived

I like the shape of this, which is partly accidental. The short lines are deliberate but the gradient not. It’s just how it turned out. Sometimes it’s like that – and you think, well, let’s make a feature of it.  How will go on?  I don’t know yet.

Turning the corner, the wind grasps at my collar. 

I am unprepared.

Yesterday the sun was warm, clouds were still.

We shared

A morning coffee out of doors. But now

I go back inside

Pick up the jacket, months unworn

And hide

- Just a start, off the top of my head - or from some other place, who knows?
