The Leaves Fell!

The leaves fell more rapidly from the trees

the autumn season changed the scene

chilly long days and early darkness

accompanied by frosts and more rain

with the winter standing by on cue

knowing the bad weather was due!


This for so long is how it has always been

today the seasons are not so defined

milder conditions are more common

floods are a bigger risk than snow

in the early sixties when I was a boy

each season marked then to enjoy!


Better when the weather seemed balanced

bad conditions came in a sequence

easier to plan holidays and events

recall when it felt a more settled time

now the climate has become unstable

with the ever rising water table!


A harsh and bleak future full of despair

lay ahead unless we learn to care!


The Foureyed Poet.
