Autumn Annie is back!

The wind is whipping up  her gown, playing with her hair.

The rustling leaves  sing their songs as they skip past her.

Her warm gold ribbons looped loosely  through her lusty rusty locks.

Enough to excite the farmers boys up and  at their work early, with the noisy cocks.

The Butterflies bid her farewell  though sad they know it’s time to go .

Summer has fled and though still fleetingly warm it won’t last  long they know.

Something prickly round her toes makes her squeal  with sweet surprise

It is a snuffling hedgehog he is looking for a place to sleep away from prying eyes.

 

She smelt  the bonfires ,saw  the smoke,  felt the chill fingering her back.

Knowing  Jack Frost was on his way was pleasing for he was such  good crack.

People started rushing home instead of strolling through the park

Children have to come in earlier from play because it is getting dark!

 

Who is she this beautiful waif , this brown eyed red haired  beauty

Of course it is Autumn Annie, here to do her seasonal duty

To gently wave off  Susie Summer and  warmly welcome Winter Wanda

Yes  she brings the fog and wind and  makes the days short and the nights grow longer !

    I don’t mind her bringing the Autumn and Winter seasons, and as she is a beautiful red haired waif it is even better 🙂 Have a lovely evening Willowdot and Happy Birthday dear 🙂
