An Autumn Walk

She welcomed November,
as she briskly strode across the meadow,
each sturdy boot clad step made with determination.


Once at the far edge, she paused to admire the loveliness of the spent seedpods peeking out from the tall grasses.


Across her face the crisp breeze swept her wayward locks,
which had escaped their pins and the warm sun brought forth a rose blush to her cheeks.


As she entered the wood, bird song, carried on the wind,
danced its melodic tune to her ear and made her smile.


Soon the soft bubbling of the brook could also be heard,
amongst the rustle of her walking skirts.


With a soft sigh, she realized how autumn was drawing her into itself.
She could quickly learn to love this season after all.
