Autumn colours creep like fire:
Smoky tendrils of fog and mist
Blanket crackling fields of stubble and stalk,
Where charred migrating birds begin to flock;
Embers of fruit glow in tree and hedgerow;
One by one, leaves burst into flame,
Raging with rubicund and golden conflagration;
A final flare before winter, that bitter
Vampire, leaches life and colour,
And nature falls into rejuvenating hibernation.
