Long Days Disapearing

entry picture

When summer turned to autumn

It took me by surprise.

It made me feel so sad.

It made me feel so wise,

To smell the fallen leaves

On the misty morning air,

To think of coming winter

And not to really care.

 

There's a beauty and a sweetness

In the dying of the year.

There's a mellowing completeness

As the long days disappear.

There's a turning, turning inwards,

A harvesting of fruits.

There's a drawing ever closer

To the earth of our roots.
