Sweet Home

Image from BONNINSTUDIO at Stocksy

Nice autumn’s end
here with you at home
outside a forest
of fairies and gnomes

The witches are at work
chestnuts in the fire
night dark with clouds
and howling wind

It’s cold, about to rain
come shelter here
give me your body
come close to me, dear

Knees all covered
with a blanket
the fleeting charm
of coloured light

We share the cover
there’s enough
for two looks lost
in the hearth

Hold me, nestle close
with your little head
of silky curls
bundled up as one

Flannel’s warmth
and soft heat
buried in the wool
of this love nest.
