Slivers of sun ripple over a glass smooth sea
Dew sodden grass with the first fall of autumn leaves.
Robin redbreast sings his September song
Lyrical and subdued sheltered in the boughs of the old plum tree
Last rose of summer sheds her petals.

My offering for open link night at d’Verse.
Spent a lovely late summer afternoon up on the Solway Firth with my Dad. The Robin sang most of the afternoon in the garden and it really took a lot of patience to track him down and get a reasonable photo. Both images taken this afternoon in Dad’s back garden.
