Treasure to save

20160921_122718

Autumn’s come early it seems as the Spring
was quite wet this year and then
the summer that followed was generally dry
and hot most days once again

It’s only September and summer remains
with sunshine that’s warm every day
But there’s gold in the trees which is lovely to see
and paints a good picture I’d say

For now though I’m hoping the sunshine remains
extending the summer we’ve seen
With gold in the trees adding treasure to save
to the riches replacing the green

The beach and me III

20160919_164314

There’s no one down here now
and the beach is quite deserted
now the sunshine’s left us
But I’m not that disconcerted

For, sitting here with just the gulls
for pleasant company
it’s really quite refreshing
to be alone beside the sea

There’s a slight Sou’Westerley a-blow
but there’s yet no autumn chill
So it’s still a lovely place to be
when you’ve some time to kill

The last hot summer night

Walking through St James’ Park
on the last hot summer night
I spied Buck House between the trees
it was a lovely sight
All lit up and shining
casting its reflection there
It was such a lovely thing to see
that I just had to share

Privilege to share

20160913_181553

Another lovely end of day
in my favourite place
Sitting in the sunshine
with a big smile on my face
I’d take a little selfie
but I’m pretty sure that you
Would rather see some beach huts
from my favourite sea view
It really is a privilege
that’s not lost on me each day
Pausing as I cycle home
‘Cos it’s always on my way
I’ll watch the sea a little while
and write a poem in my book
Capturing words of what I see
as it’s always worth a look
Perhaps some day you’ll join me
I have some deckchairs spare
As it would be a pleasure
This view with you to share

Remnant of Summer

On the breath of a morning
I caught in the air
a lingering fragrance
subtle and rare
A remnant of summer
to cherish and hold
and remain with me as
the autumn turns gold

Painted

20160924_152345

The day began with sunshine
so I popped down to the beach
armed with paints and brushes
and a long pole for to reach
the top bit of the beach hut
as it needs a lick of paint
It took me several hours
but a craftsman I just ain’t
It wouldn’t cut the mustard
with a decorator man
But it’s weatherproof and brighter
and I’m pleased with it, I am

Promises Golden

20160913_071915

The day started golden
with promise in store
that there would be warmth
with the sunshine once more
Mid-September but still
the summer is here
Though autumn is calling
and is close by I fear
But on days when the sunshine
has more stories to tell
The promise holds true
and still bodes us well
So I’ll not wish the summer
to leave us just yet
Particularly if more
days like this we will get
Long may it continue
that’s what I say
with more promises golden
like the one from today
