As  the winds whistle and blow right through

cracks and crevices that surround you

strange sounds emit a cry

as the darkness of night set in

and owls fly through the night sky

the hunt goes on for food

as mouse scurry to hide

or face its doom

rains lash the roof tops too

windows get splashed

puddles appear

dark autumn nights

have started to appear

long gone are hot summers days

when on the beaches did we strip and lay

or sit and drink a beer

observing people at play

in doors now huddled close too

in front of open fire with a brew

we contemplate what has been

now in the past

like a piece of history

those cold dark night

have set right in

a movie a film

let the show begin

a book or tale we may read each day

wonderous words that are on display

as dark autumn nights have their say

as hibernation sets in and we lay

snuggled up close inside the duvet

keeping the cold hidden away.
