And gently as the sun goes down
The smoke from bonfires all around.
The hedgehog and the squirrel gone to ground
Grandpa shows the lad the acorns and pine combs he has found.
Twirls of mist at morn and dusk chill the bones
Lights on for breakfast and for tea in cozy looking homes.
The leaves swirl and dance, children curled up by the fire their noses in tombs.
Fairies dancing in the fire glad they are not outside, it’s getting chilly for the garden gnomes.
The grass is sodden and the flowers in the garden droop and bend
Fathers and sons bonfires build and another summer is at an end .
All Souls and Halloween are in view lots of spooky things to do for Vlad and his friends.
Frosts and fog sweep and unfurl through the streets across the fields , down to the river and around the bend.
Summer had picked up her skirts and in a flash was gone
Taking with her the warm and flighty summer song
It’s got cold and damp, and we’ve lost an hour but nothings wrong
Autumn Annie has returned, now that lovely flowering summer has gone.
