As I looked out the window a north wind blew
It was cold and damp and I was feeling blue
Some birds chittered chatted
And a passing horse hooves clittered clattered
As the last of the apples had gotten redder an redder
The grass beneath my feet was soft and glittering
with a crunch that said Autumn is calling
As the days grow shorter and the leaves turned browner
The weather may get wetter but the fruit tastes better.
Winter is up next with the white snow falling
and I can almost hear St Nicholas calling.
But first we need a tree and for the decorations
With holly growing, and the mistletoe falling
Mingled with the sweet smell of Mothers Christmas pudding
I hear carol singers singing and the sweet robins chirping
Its Christmas time, so Santa clause must be near
Now that Christmas is over
And the days are getting longer
The daffodils are growing
And Spring is just around the corner
There is so much to look forward to St. Patricks day, Easter and summer
but most of all a new year and new beginning.
