Autumn Thoughts 7

My final version:

The acer is still aflame
Its red umbrella sheltering sparrows
Who ignore the rain 
And continue inspecting the unkempt grass

The aspen waves goodbye
To multi-coloured leaves
Which make a mosaic on the ground
Yellow red and brown
Between lawn and compost bins

And a single robin enquires 
What I’m doing there.
Just taking one more look
Before the wind and water
Change things once again.
