Late Autumn

Now Autumn's fires burn slowly o'er hills and dales.

Day by day leaves change colour.

Bright skies beckon, 

come quick, come see,
as the leaves drift earthwards, 
in glittering flurries of gold;

They're covering the sleeping flowers,
in a warm embrace,

and spreading leafy carpets,

throughout our woods.

And as we walk through them,

they chatter and crunch beneath our feet.
