soon it will be . . .

soon it will be . . .
soon it will be a time of change
summer breezes replaced as Mother Nature claims
the leaves from the trees that have now turned to gold
gone are the fresh greens that now become old
wrinkled and stained with autumn and her frosts
beauty remains there is no character lost
as they fall slowly and get blown far away
you will hear a sigh as they say goodbye . . .
be not sad as the wind howls through the trees
the sunlight replaces and does appease
golden moments will come shining through
giving us warmth as the embers glow
now is the time to collect wood for the fire
pine cones and chestnuts and acorns are mine
but I share with the squirrels who are hiding with care
burying them here and burying them there . . .
the late bees are drowsy oh yes it's true
butterflies niow gone but to where I've no clue
the spiders are hanging in webs so fine
to catch unsuspecting flies for to dine
the dew will come and leave glistening drops
Mother Nature has finished with summertime crops
the little mice will run through the fields
birds will eat the last of the seeds
the nights slowly darken and a calmness resides
the creatures now hurry home to hide
night owls you will hear them call . . .
all will be seen and heard with the fall
soon it will be a time of change
Mother Nature her summer has reclaimed

Surely the grapes need a bit of time for ripening. E.g. a golden October. ;)

The golden light,
Frost's first bite,
A longer night,
As the heat of summer
Takes her long slumber.

Good riddance as far as I am concerned :)

A beautiful capture of the changing seasons, masterfully composed.
I love the poem, too.

It was so cold here Saturday morning, I saw a nut gathering squirrels. :)

beverleyplaya has replied to Dave Linscheid
winds of change . . . o0o well thanks Dave, now thats food for thought ;-) o0o

soon you will have snow again, can this compare ?
throwing it here and throwing it there,
there will be so much snow everywhere ;-)
you will feel so cold as cold as can be
and taking a video of snow we shall see ;-)
wellington boots filled up with snow
and yes your nose will be all a glow ;-)

Awesome series! The grapes look so tempting... but recently when I came across some wild grapes and tried one, it was sooooooo sour!
4 years ago.
beverleyplaya has replied to William Sutherland
winds of change . . . o0o I think they can be sour indeed and these I think are left ;-) it is an old old vine in the National Trust Property and because of its age and determination to keep producing they keep it ... cut it back, and allow it to continue to survive ;-) it obviously likes the position its in ... its very very old and actually grew threw the greenhouse where it was planted in ... which has now just about totally disappeared ;-) sour ? yes I can imagine ;-) oOo

CONGRATULATIONS from the MEMBERS of EXPLORED 4U .

Next I see the nut is out and about
I'll tell him the truth must come out.
He'll give me a report,
And I will retort:)

there is a dance of the Nutcracker its true
I think nuts are used and quite a few
the music is a delight to hear
as they tip toe over the nuts in gear
it is also funny to see appear
some nut who seems to be quite queer
and who he is we have no idea
just a nut gathering squirrels sadly I fear ;-)

winds of change . . . o0o slowly I think so Rob oOo

the reds and the greens of the fruit on the vine
I am sure will make very fine wine
once the harvest is cropped the leaves will fall
wooden casks of wine in dark cellars stored
then the frosts will cover the ground
fine mists rising and floating around
gentle sunlight appears through the sky
the swallows and swifts are now flying high . . .

Anything with a bit of brightness and colour is good for me just now, Bev. I need a lift. This is a beaut!

beverleyplaya has replied to Phill G
winds of change . . . o0o hello Phill, you need a lift ? where do you want to go ?
I try to avoid motorways and like country lanes if that will do ;-) and pleased you like it,
they did look lovely in the late afternoon / early evening sunlight, the sunset was lovely
too ... so imagine a drive along a country lane in the Cotswolds, have a drink of wine
when you get home and hope it helps to lift the spirits ;-) chin up and a facelift helps ;-)
you can afford it ;-) oOo
