Autumn ... Saturday Centus

It feels like ages since I've posted, so I thought I'd join in with
Jenny Matlocks Saturday Centus shake up this week.
Use 32 words including the line "In the autumn"  
 to write 'lyrics' to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star! 

Well here goes ... clear your throat and prepare to sing  :o)


Confetti gold, jewelled lanes
In the autumn summer wanes.
Scarlet skies as evenings call
prepared for winter, bronzes fall.
Beds and blankets, nests to sleep
warm inside as winter creeps.

Debra Ann Elliott said...

Beautiful...

Erika said...

Beautiful! In this part of Texas we really don't get to experience autumn with golden anything. Unless you count this drought where everything that ought to be green is a golden brown.

Dear Deborah,
Thanks for visiting my tune!
Glad you are back with SC!

Your song has a lot of lovely images with gorgeous autumn colours: golden, bronze, scarlet. You have captured well the feel of the change in season; lamenting the end of summer and embracing that which is good about fall.

Best wishes,
Anna
