October colour’s warm, as heart


leaves downfall and some do part


Upon a branch a magpie sits


And I, my eyes well they do twitch


Above my head the sky a peach


Birds do sing in oh, high pitch


Wind is kept from blowing strong


As, Autumn's time is not so long


Before the winter takes her place


And auburn leaves are barely traced.

        As soon as I read your first words, i was like no no no stop.... its still September and me a my daughter have a birthday to share but part of me can't wait for the change and play with the leaves in the wind or rain!

        The cycle is a blessing for nothing to ever stay the same!

        Have a fantastic day!

        • Teddy.15

          Good morning dear Dan, happy birthday to you guys then, I'm just being selfish as I wasn't mine to come around lol 🤣 thank you dear friend, have a great day, biggest hugs to you and your family 💖

          • Poetic Dan

            Oh it's not yet 20th... she is 2 and I'm be 40! I'll be honest never thought I'd still be here, let alone fighting my brain to want more!

            I shall raise a glass when October appears, for another soul to have a beautiful year!

              I'm still loving September for now - what's left of it, which is about half a month!

                One more month and I go into Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin mode.Bring forth those autumnal leaves and the "big" winds of autumn.

                • Teddy.15

                  Yes Neil thank you. 🤣

                  I've got, syrup hue leaves adorning the pavement
                  rain soaked wheels churning, splashing: London's anthem,
                  and grey clouds, blending-in with even more bleak, high rises and sky scrapers..
                  'Our' Beloved London, is immersed once more
                  in its moody romance with all-things, wondrously Autumnal...
                  (thanks for sharing such a vivid portrait in words, and
                  for inspiring my little scribbled reply, dear 'Poetess')

                  • Teddy.15

                    LOL 🤣 oh L.B you are.always such fun, tomorrow I may post one for Christmas who knows. I need some cold snow to cool me down after such a hot summer. Thank you dear friend. X

                  • Accidental Poet

                    Maybe I'll just hibernate until April. 🤣 Great write Teddy.

                    • Teddy.15

                      lol nooo i adore the cold weather, thanks you for visiting dear A.P always such a pleasure to see you. it's still in the high 30's here and hasn't rained for more than 3 months. Thank you dear Poet.

                      • Accidental Poet

                        Ha, no rain in 3 months? My lawn has been green all summer long, and that's NEVER happened. But this is the first Summer in forever (almost) that we didn't get a dry spell in the heat of the Summer. I love having a green yard. but of course about 50% of it is crab grass. (weeds) But it's GREEN 😎 Bundle up Teddy, Winter is coming. BRRRR, I can feel it now.😢

                        Good write, Teddy.
                        Summer can make you slouch toward Fall, winter can make you slouch toward Spring. Through it all, each trip around the sun blossom is worth the ride.

                        • Teddy.15

                          Very well said dear Jerry, love your thoughts, thanks so much for coming by. 🤗

                          nicely written Teddy...
                          got me thinking;
                          i would go for December myself.
                          seeing the year out with prezzies, Christmas puds, surrounded by friends.

                          • Teddy.15

                            Hello dear Melvin, Christmas is my favourite time of year, I adore it and all the special moments with friends and so on, you'll be sick of my pudding poetry. 🤣 thank you dear friend.
