Autumn's Cheer

Autumn’s Cheer

The nights are drawing in
The sun’s reluctant stare
Is now a faded memory
No more its pleasant glare
I watch the swans now huddled
Against the wind and rain
The spring seems very far away
As comes winter’s domain
The cold and bleak stark winds
Now howl across the bay
Reminding all that summer
Is many months away
But then the sun relents
And shines so bright once more
And with the autumn colours
It opens nature’s door
And everyone can see
The golds and reds and browns
That banish all the misery
And smiles replace the frowns
So even as the winter
Stands poised to crash and scream
The beauty of the autumn
Makes all the eyes now gleam
A radiant splash of colour
To help us through those miles
And make sure for a part of it
We’ll all be wreathed in smiles
