Like stars clothed in pink beside the millpond,
your faces look up - to the sun they respond.
Veins that are tempting to creatures nearby.
If they are not eaten by that dragonfly!
With centres all changing from yellow to brown
as the season moves on you're losing your crown.
Out of your centre so big and bold,
an enormous rose hip we now do behold.
Though round and green you'll soon be ripe.
The seeds inside are the eating type.
Full of vitamins for people to eat.
My! What a lovely autumn treat!
