"It Is Time Again" by Sandra du Plessis

It's time again for Autumn's call
the leaves will fall,
onto the ground
without a sound.

The colder weather's closing in
when fall begins,
the days are short
at night we snort.

We take our daily walk at dawn
to see the fawn;
and hear the songs
of birds prolong.

Example:
I Need Someone

I need someone to hold me tight
Through dark of night,
Who won't go 'way
At break of day.

Someone whose love will mend the seams
Of broken dreams,
And give me back
The trust I lack.

For love, it holds the magic key
To set me free,
To heal my soul
And make me whole.
