Cooling Days

the wind picks up
the cooling breeze
the darkening nights
and coloured leaves
it’s so tired
the warming sun
perhaps it’s happy
it’s job is done
time for blankets
and coats with down
hats and scarves
wait for snow on the ground

I love this time
resetting life
slowing the days
lengthening the night
soon a tree
trimmed and lit
a man in red
with a knee to sit
and songs play
with cheer and mirth
for the jolly man
of generous girth

I love this time
every single year
cooling days
and loved ones near
