Autumn lifts her misty veil

    And soaks up golden sun.

Today’s the day she’s waited for –

    Her day for having fun.


She knocks the nuts down to the ground

    And blows leaves from the trees.

Children button up their coats

    To fight her blustery breeze.


She tosses ships upon the waves

    With winds that blow with force,

Whilst overhead the fleecy clouds

     Race through the sky, of course.


The swallows say their quick “goodbyes”

    And leave for warmer climes –

For winter follows autumn days

    With ice and snow sometimes.


It’s back to school the children go –

    School holidays have passed,

But all too soon it’s Christmastime,

    So, come, don’t look downcast.
