Pretty as a Picture

There is nothing like a mild, sunny autumn day to lift the spirits. There are very marked seasons here and autumn has to be one of my favourites. Whilst I was walking through the fields near work one day, I felt as if I was almost meandering through an impressionist painting.

Autumn Picture

The grass is gleaming, golden green

Ploughed fields perfume the zephyr

The baby blue sky sits serene

I love this autumn weather

The open fields with outstretched arms

Reveal their harvest treasures

No price can be placed upon the charms

Of sun drenched walks at leisure

It’s burnt sienna, apricot

And mellow, amber flame

The spirit of this autumn stroll

I’d love to paint and frame

No dress rehearsal, this is it

Life is a one off fixture

Each moss green, pumpkin colour fits

The perfect autumn picture
