Autumn

As I’m walking by the lakes,

A gentle breeze is all it takes

To blow the leaves to the ground

Browns and yellows lying all around.

Blackbirds,Magpies and Blue tits call,

I wonder if I will see them all?

I look up to see the Gulls fly byGliding across the clear blue sky.

The Heron waits upon the lakes,

A darting plunge is all it takes…..

To catch and gulp it’s wriggling prey,

To aid survival for another day.

Swans,Wagtails ducks and Geese,

my love of wildlife,will never cease.

To see the orange,the reds and green,

Make it a wonderful autumninal scene.

I really have enjoyed my walk today,

Along the path of Autumn way!
