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,




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.]
