October’s weather anticipates the winter

Clear, glassy days interspersed with heavy showers

A pervading sense of winter looming

Scarves are swathed, encasing like a mummy

Gloved hands thrust into pockets deep

October’s weather anticipates the winter

Sun shines on autumn leaves with golden glory

That rustle when dry and cause havoc when wet

Clear, glassy days interspersed with heavy showers

Warm fires, cosy blankets become our focal point

Let stormy winds and rain stay without

A pervading sense of winter looming
