AUTUMN POEM

– 

The chilling rains

Have blasted leaves

From black-barked trees.

Too soon has this happened

Thinking there would be yet time.

– 

Time to marvel

At Nature’s robust palette,

To fill the eyes and senses

With ethereal beauty

No man-made tints can challenge.

– 

But like most of life

We are behind

And lose out to clockwork

Not of our making.
