Take to the Wood

I’m soon to invite some family over for a bit of autumn fun. We gather in October. Below, I share the invitation I’ll send to all whose places are the nearest.

An Invitation

Quick,
the summer leaf
has blushed;
soon the oak
will flame
with autumn
and we’ve yet
to taste
the season’s ale.
Take to the wood;
ford the river
where the shallows
unveil safe passage.

Quick,
step through
the forest dark
before night mixes
with the fallen shade,
calling trolls
to beat their drums,
winged beasts
to seek their perch.
Here, the hearth
warms with welcoming.
and the air will sweeten
with your laughter.
