An Interlocking Rubaiyat Poem all about Autumn, for the Verdant Poetry Contest. (Poem 24)
Welcoming Autumn winds that cut like a knife.
The sky at night all bright and Orange
Beginning with the falling of its first leaf.
Walking against the wind can be a challenge,
Wild animals start their hunt and hurriedly scavenge.
The morning sky is full from the bird's call
Winter's frosty grip, awaits for its revenge.
Raincoats hanging in the hall,
Umbrellas leant against the wall.
Reds and Browns form upon the leaves
Wellies love puddles, but not a waterfall.
Wrap up warm with hat, scarf and even gloves,
No more T-shirts, long sleeves are a must.
Children playing with their colourful kites
Pull a book down from those dusty shelves.
The kites flight reaching great heights,
Trying to keep warm from fire sprites.
Is this what it's like, The cycle of life
A colourful season, with some great sights.
