Lakeside view

You wore autumn hair

When the sun shone bright

And went into mourning

Before summertime’s end

 

A lakeside view

 

Wreathed in nicotine

Trying habits on for size

The final pack can be crushed and thrown

Long before the tar takes hold

 

A lakeside view

 

Youthful faith in different ways

A test of courage to stay

Stood out from the crowd

Needing care to escape

Future pantomimes

 

A lakeside view

 

Remember purple and smoke

As black fades

To uniform grey

A time before nostalgia

Is when you are truly Yourself

 

A lakeside view
