MS (8.4.1929 / Marton, Lancashire)

Autumn Song

Can you see the leaves as they fall down
Some golden yellow some golden brown
Whispering gently as they fall upon the ground
Its here its now its autumn all around.
Now lays a golden carpet where there was green
And the wind blowing softly rustling the fallen leaves.
There'll lots of chestnuts lying side by side
And cool crisp evenings will have arrived
The colours of summer have been and gone
Now the colours of autumn will sing their song.
The season is changing to russets and browns
And an autumn glow lays all around.
The many birds that gather on the trees
Know that now's the time that they must leave
To travel south and find warmer skies
Listen to them singing their songs of goodbye.
In the woods are the squirrels
Many of them down on the ground
For they must search all around
Their foodstore they must build up high
Before the winter comes a nigh.

Rilke had a big impact on me. I hope that this piece will serve as an introduction for others.... t x
