When I was young, one of my favourite songs to sing in school assembly was called Autumn Days, it has some lovely lyrics (and some pretty bonkers ones) as this verse typifies:
Autumn days, when the grass is jewelled
And the silk inside a chestnut shell
Jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled
All these things I love so well
Seriously, who has ever seen jets refuelling in the sky… anyway, some of the lovely images such as
a winter’s moon with frosted rings
Whipped-up spray that is rainbow-scattered
And a swallow curving in the sky
really stuck with me, and I felt that quintessential autumnal essence very strongly today.
And on this lovely autumn day I couldn’t resist wearing autumn colours
Hope everyone’s enjoying this lovely spell of sunny weather.
