Seasonal Acrostic, by Mark Albany

After the barbecues, the sun cream and the wasps,

Umbrellas sneak from cupboards under stairs.

Toes wriggle in the season’s latest boots –

Unfamiliar prison, after sandals’ freedom.

Mild days are overtaken by a chillier nip;

November, with its leaden wings, awaits its turn.
