As Summer slowly slips away,
and Autumn colours paint the trees,
the dancing leaves with winds that tease,
see darker mornings start the day.

The Magpie, Blackbird and the Jay,
now dominate the bridle way,
as Summer slowly slips away,
and Autumn colours paint the trees.

The ruddy Fox and Owls can prey
on smaller mammals with new ease,
through underbrush devoid of leaves,
where last born young compete and play,
as Summer slowly slips away.
