Summer Books.

The first flurry of falling leaves.

Summer sorted out her books

today, threw out the old leaves

torn from spring’s fresh cover.


They lie, brightly coloured pages

along the year’s short path.


Dampened now, with the first

moist eye of autumn.

Lovely and original to boot. Autumn is a beautiful season in many ways but it always has a sadness in it for me. Like you I feel it has arrived way too soon.

I ADORE the smell of a bonfire! I spent my childhood having bonfires and the scent of smoke on the Autumn breeze makes me feel very alive
. Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

So imaginative Sue, a delightful piece of writing. And yes, summer is over all too soon.

Like it. Small but perfectly formed.
