Changing Seasons

Changing Seasons
~~~

Summer is almost gone

And Autumn’s on its way

Trees of green and red and gold

Stunning scenes of coloured leaves

Against an azure sky

Each season is its own reward

But nothing can compare

With Autumn’s exhibition

Of splendour to the eye

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

    • Mine too… Our summer this year has been very mild so I hope that winter is too, although it doesn’t necessarily follow – last winter I froze! 🙂

  4. I have a Japanese maple in my garden too and I do love the way the leaves change at this time of year. I think you notice autumn a lot with maple trees. I really enjoyed reading your poem!

    • Yes, I agree. I lived most of my life in Durban on the coast of KwaZulu Natal which has a subtropical climate so we hardly had any noticeable change between summer and autumn.
