Today’s #poetry Why I love autumn
Part of the challenge this poem’s prompt brought was rhyming couplets… HOW HARD are they?! You will have to excuse my lame attempt…
Here in the middle of sticky heat
Summer burning, I cannot compete.
I long for the cool air
That Autumn brings to bear
Leaves all ablaze in a riot of colour
So much better than grey winter palour.
Clear starry nights
And crisp twilights
Autumn is the beginning of my year
Those temperate days; I hold dear.
