I'm linking up with Jenny Matlock today for Saturday Centus. You'll see Jenny's button at the bottom of the post if you'd like to link up anytime this week.
Today's prompt is "In the Autumn." Jenny says if we do it right, our poetic offering should fit the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." The prescribed word count this week is 32 words. As you read or sing mine, as the case may be, remember the poet grew up in beautiful Kentucky and southern Indiana, but now hails from South Florida.

In the Autumn, how I long
For a cool breeze, oh so strong.
Down below the other states,
Florida, for fall must wait.
No crisp air, no leaves that turn
Just sunshine and waves that churn.
