Aubade to Autumn

Form: Aubade

Water-colour skies drift
over once golden fields
like a dream softly waking
in the hazy yellow of dawn
melting into the vibrant leaves
like falling ribbons of scarlet and gold
that carpet the earth
horse chestnuts in shining mahogany
challenge the boys to play
in the cracking echoes of a conker game
before the school bell calls
on an autumn day
nature presents her masterpiece
