First Frost

First frost bleaches the rooftops
Patchworks the grass
River mist merges
White with white
Wintry scene
Christmas card scene

Shop windows full
Scarlet, nodding, ho-ho-hoing Santas
Glowing with inner light
Plastic snowmen
Cotton wool, fake snow, tinsel
Gifts galore
Muzak carolling
Grab them early
It's October
Only ten weeks to go!
