The Lammas moon rises in a clear night sky,

In the warm morning sun, bees work the borage flowers,

the leaves look battered and tired now,

the birch tree overhanging the kitchen garden

stands speckled with yellow leaves,

signalling autumn will be early this year.

It’ll be time for the apple harvest soon.
