FALL FASHION PARADE
The event’s been spectacular, admission was free
available to all who took time to see
the Fall Fashion Parade.
Over hill and through dale,
along freeways, boulevards, back alleys and lanes
models stood proud.
The Master Creator excelled once again,
unmatched by designers of New York’s domain,
unbiased toward colours, shapes, gender or size
From pear shaped, round apple, to slender and tall,
some stocky, some spindly, some stately, some small
complementing each other.
In a palette of warm yellows, rich reds, orange and browns
splashed with bright pinks, white berries and seed pods like crowns
accessories held close.
They fluttered and bowed as the breeze sighed with awe,
till stiff gusts of November shook their gowns to the ground
leaving limbs naked and bare in the late autumn's chill
all became still.
The crowds drop their gaze to Earth’s littered floor.
Hark! a bell, could there be more?
evergreens laden with baubles and lights
waiting to take center stage.
