Wool jumper has been

taken from a drawer,

warm coat has been hung

on the back of the door.

Summer has gone and

the days are getting colder,

another winter to come

and another year to get older.

Wood has been stacked

ready for the fire,

chairs have been moved

to make way for the clothes dryer.

Windows and doors have been

checked for draughts,

while the old chimney has been

blocked to prevent a down-draught.

I look around satisfied

that everything’s prepared

in this small house that we use to share.
