I went for a walk yesterday and stopped off for a sit down on a park bench. As I sat there I felt the seasons changing, yep right there in front of me it turned to Autumn. It may have been the fact that the park had lost the hustle and bustle of it's summer visitors, the ice cream van had gone and it did feel a little chilly. It just felt different. This inspired me for my verse today so I hope you like it.
I noticed it yesterday while out for a walk
it was like a good friend who was leaving and would no longer talk
A sad farewell for another year
goodbye to the Summer, for now Autumn is here
My son, he insists it's called 'Fall'
who am I to argue, he's way to tall
We sat, chatted and took in the view
him with an ice lolly and me with my brew
It's back to school and college tomorrow
I sense some excitement, definitely no sorrow
A new uniform for some to wear
early mornings and being told to 'brush that hair'
Will we be organised and all on time
it would be a miracle and totally sublime
I have two teenagers what could possibly go wrong?
Should I invest in a fanfare or a bloody big gong?
I haven't missed going on the school run
the roads they'll be busy - oh what fun!
Not for much longer, a year now to go
my youngest will go to college, for him a bus I will show
So we say a goodbye to the summer
I'm so sad, it's such a bummer
I don't like the dark nights
wearing jumpers and big woolly tights
I suppose it will be cosy, a bit chilly but who knows
we really don't have a choice, we'll go with what flows
Maybe Autumn will be sunny, sticky and warm
an Indian summer would suffice and totally against the norm
Whatever it is it's another season we have been given
happy tales, holiday snaps and everything forgiven
As on we go, the future to be had
just pop on a cardigan and let's all be really glad.
Thanks for reading, I will be back tomorrow for Free From Friday.
For now take care......
