AUTUMN WALK 111102

Casa in Autumn

Young leaping cricket matches my stride
Treats it like a frantic fairground ride
Centipedes black and horned beetles all
Cast caution to wind, crossing the mall.
I take my morning constitution
Thinking of peaceful restitution.
Regardless of weather, rain or sun
Regarding companions having fun.
Wild fennel flowers despite autumn chill,
Yellow coronets provide a thrill
For the eyes to feast across the scape,
Close to distant, bands of ripened grape.
Turning now green to gold, purple, red
Natures putting everything to bed.
‘Would that violence would cease’ I call,
‘Let peace reign wherever rain can fall’.
