I like autum

Out of the four seasons I like autum the most,.
because it's the me of seasons.

It doesn't insist on itself,
like spring with its bright light and colours,
constantly blooming flowers and trees
and plentiful cultural celebrations.

It isn't unpredictable like summer,
with its constantly alternating sun and rain,
mind-numbing summer-menace and
possibly cancelled concerts.

It doesn't act all internet-emo like winter,
going all dark and gloomy,
dragging everything down with storms and chills
and making you wish it was all over.

Autum is just what it is.
Subdued leaves and grey everything.
The same year after year.
Matching the natural melancholy of my home.

I like autum.
