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 🙂

      Thank you sir, she is pretty and scantily dressed, perhaps you could lend her your coat

        I most certainly would do that for her, in fact I would do that for any lady wishing to be covered up, away from the gaze of unwanted advances 🙂

        I hope that you are having a
        lovely weekend so far Willowdot 🙂

        It is going rather nicely thank you, this morning I watched the qualifying for the race tomorrow, I am a big Formula One fan so it should be a wicked race on the morrow 🙂 I hope Fernando Alonso wins, or Louis Hamilton 🙂 Two of my favourite drivers since Michael Schumacher retired from racing 🙂 Well I only said 🙂 lol

        AH! They are big fans of formula One here too. I am not sure how that will work out , will they all desert me for the race… no matter there will be six of us women so we can drink the wine!! I do hope you enjoy the race , what about Jason Button!

        Jenson Button is driving a McLaren and that car has not been performing very well this season so I excluded him for the race, I know I didn’t mention him as a favourite but I do like the guy and he drives great, he just needs a better car next year 🙂 lol

        I think the wine option is a nice alternative 🙂
