Soon to Slumber

My days grow short

My magic, like the sunshine wanes

I have had my time in this forest realm

Of my greenery and flowers – few remain

I shall soon depart to my slumber

My sister, Autumn shall have her turn

And she in time too will rest

As my Cousin Winter my work will overturn

But young Sister Spring will in time wake

And begin our forest to renew

And I, Summer will paint the woods

With blossom, and scent for you

Clothed in mist, in velvet fog adorned

Oh, how the meadow is dressed on this Autumn morn

Flocks head away, to their winter nests

Mice below prepare for cold-weather rests

Oh, so much is happening on this chill morning

When nature – the meadow is with velvet fog adorning

Blanket of moss, carpet of leaves

Nature’s cushion against autumn’s chill

Fallen trees, and layers of loam

Giving woodland creatures comfy homes

Blanket of moss, carpet of leaves

Nature’s cushion against autumn’s chill

Soon new carpets of snow will fall

Wildlife remaining comfy still

Autumn’s chill fingers
Reach deeply within the earth
Summer’s green passing
Fungi raise their heads aloft
To greet their chosen season
