“Poems of Autumn”

(Watercolor, Jane Kohut-Bartels, 2003)



Autumn wind startles,

Lowered to an ominous

Key—Ah! Mournful sounds!

The fat mountain deer listen-

And add their sounds of sorrow.


Autumn coming


Bullfrogs bellow a different pitch

Autumn’s fast approaching.

And though they soak in a rocky pond

Summer’s heat they can’t escape.


Full moon reflects in half-sunk eyes

Perhaps fish mistake the moons of Mars

And in their algaed depth by night

They travel the cosmos past the stars.
