A shiny chestnut conker

A Shiny chestnut conker, smooth to the touch.
And a harvest of eight plump pears from our tree
Seven thirty and the light is starting to diminish.
lamps are needed to read by.
The time of fires is fast approaching.
Next week is forecast to be a late blast of heat,
Summer going out in a blaze
before the equinox marks the step change in the seasons
And the year wanes
into the time of shorter days
and lengthening nights.
