“The nascent autumn” #poem #poetry #verse

The nascent autumn imminent 
Besought the wisdom and the sanction 
Of the keeper of the times and seasons 
For of much impatience was the autumn possessed
As at the edges of the hem of the great cloak 
Sported by the mighty incumbent 
That soon to be departed summer 
Did it surreptitiously nibble
A little fraying for to commence
A slow unravelling discreet for to introduce 
To the lavish vestment robust 
That throughout the lengthy glowing days
And warm nights balmy of summertide
Had covered the realm
In vibrant golds and vermilions 
And emerald greens 
Below skies of dazzling azures and brilliant sapphire blues
As the impatient precocious incomer 
Now did verily paw at the firmament 
In hues of lilacs and ambers and russet golds
As a persistent child single minded
Does a parent for attention insistently pester
It scratches at the branches 
At the still green leaves tugging 
And nibbles at not yet fully ripened fruit 
To their trees a’clinging
And the realm does shudder shiversome
In the cool damp air of morn
At the parvenu demands of the nouveau arrivé
