Autumn Car Boot Sale Mornings!


This coming Saturday is our last car boot sale of the season. The mornings have suddenly become darker and there is a distinct chill in the air. Some hardy souls always question why we don’t continue through the winter, I always respond by suggesting that autumn is a gentle reminder of things to come…

Autumn mornings are here once more,
First fallen leaves upon the floor.
At the boot sale buyers hunch their shoulders,
As they barter with the gloved-stallholders.

From the tea urn white steam rises,
Hot drinks poured in different sizes.
No need now for ice-cream scoop,
Just warming coffee and cups of soup!

A mist pervades the distant hills,
Monochromed early-morning stills.
The sun reluctant to leave its bed,
Perhaps we should be there instead!
