Autumn Walks.......

Autumn Walks.

I see Autumn leaves all swirling down
In shades of Olive,scarlet, amber and brown.
I take deep breaths of cold crisp air
And catch a stray leaf in tendrils of hair.
I raise my face towards the sun
It's weaker now that summer is done.
My last eager walks in woodlands deep,
Before all is done and put to sleep
Under blankets of snow and freezing ice.
Everything now is so precious and nice.
The sky is so blue, so pristine and bright
Soon it will be leaden and looking like night.
I can't miss out on these heavenly days
I need to soak up the last gentle rays.
