Summer in late autumn revisited

by Jem Croucher

1 of 12 in the Jemverse ‘October’ series

Looking down to Stanmer House
across the open field
You’d be forgiven for mistaking
the day to be from summer’s yield

Long shadows of late evening
from a warm and balmy day
Sometime in early summer
Perhaps at the end of May?

But no, this is October
with November closing in
Long shows of mid afternoon
with Autumn in full swing

Yet here we are in shirtsleeves
with the sun warm in the sky
No gloves or hats are needed
as we amble slowly by

Perhaps this is a rarity
but there’s no complaining here
For these days of Autumn sunshine
will always bring good cheer
