A seasonal poem in Trois-par-Huit form (described following the poem)
Chilly breeze
strips faded hues from trees,
sends shivers through autumn wardrobe's pores

Time to finish outside tasks and settle indoors,
cuddle by the fireplace with cocoa and s'mores,
bask in glow of crackle and ember

Visions to remember,
December
