98 – Day Watch Below!

Poem number 98
Day Watch Below!
Autumn is rising, his feet out of bed
Shaking the cobwebs and dreams from his head
Before him a season of effort and toil
Scouring the treetops and mulching the soil
But he’s willing and eager, ready to start
Refreshed and renewed with a song in his heart
He peers through the window, gauging the morn
There’s time yet for breakfast, he’ll clock on at dawn
To take on the baton from Summer, to say
“I hereby relieve you, now be on your way”
And settle his boots firmly into the reins
The thrill of beginning will run through his veins
His season, his nature, his banner unfurled
The Autumn begins. It’s his time. It’s his world.
