Stay safe and healthy in the autumn | SCAS Kids

 

Leaves crisp

brown,  dust:

 

north wind blasts

summer corners.

 

You recede

like the tide,

 

heart tick tocks.

 

Sleep curls

into autumn,

 

rhythm:

 

lavender, rose-hip,

blackberry stain,

 

winter crumble

shuttered houses.

 

The past trembles

images tumble towards

 

half sleep.

 

‘’So much life

in the girl!

 

Who’d have thought it?”*

 

 

*[MacBeth parody. Act 5 Sc 1.]
