AS AUTUMN TURNS
How grey the slippery pathways lie
on days like this when affluent rain
falls heavy on the thirsty land.
See how the watery rays of light
turned silver plated in the mist
reflect upon the heath topped hills
which dip their feet in shining seas
where silk white stallions dance.
Listen to the keening winds
as lanyards tap and squawking gulls
sweep low across the paynes grey waves.
