Merry Weather

Nights are getting longer
Daylight passing quicker
autumn wind is blowing cold
as bus queues groan and bicker

Mornings now devoid of good
Heavy clouds are raining sad
Apart from ghouls at Halloween
We're on the lighter side of bad

Costly comfort bills are rising
the well worn overcoat is on
our optimistic family car
Sounds more like a dying swan

Our garden built on summer dreams
looking saggy dank lackluster
is showing signs of self-composting
Pre-empting winter's knuckle-duster
