Autumn Leaves (Poem)

Let the air curl around your feet,
crunching – bare on scarlet leaves.
A blizzard of descending colours,
as the sky darkens and clocks reverse.
The nights grow longer, allowing time
for blankets and comforts and hot chocolate.
Sleeves get longer and coats begin to appear,
the winter warmers and the fire’s flickering.
Soon, the white flakes will fall,
covering the Earth with a icy duvet.
And just as quickly as Autumn surfaced, Winter will
takeover – and I’ll say goodbye to the rain.
