Stirring winds and gentle breezes,
Cloudy shadows and reddening skies.
A slight chill tickles your spine,
Cold temperatures causing sore eyes.
Covid feels distant yet still it transmits,
Businesses plan Christmas parties.
Halloween looms with its tricks and its treats,
I’d be quite happy with Smarties.
People forget all the things they had learned,
Mix closely and stir up the issue,
While hospitals struggle and nurses work hard,
I hear someone sneezing ‘A-Tissue!’
Look after each other as Autumn prevails,
Show that you care, with respect.
Try to be sensible, enjoying the season,
Let Autumn be what you expect.
