Turn-Turn the Seasons Twirl
this is supposed to be a cooling off period
a time to unwind and let the sap slow
to a drip until it is frozen in the trunk
to lie next to evergreens with children’s gifts
dreaming of plum blossoms dancing
from a burgeoning beginning
of warm weather for which, we will long
to cool down from, come this time again
next year, where we will begin to fall
once more into the wonder of it all
Happy is the Autumn with it’s coming scents of nutmeg, cinnamon and hot chocolate. The sounds of crinkling leaves in red, brown, gold and even purple. The fuzzy feel of knitted sweaters and fur lined shoes. Arms, warm and winding tightly, kissing through into the new year.
Or did I?
