Autumn Tactics

It's autumn in the land I remember.

At once those leaves once green turn warm

when the laborious summer days seek rest.

We brace for winter's storm.

It's solemn in the land I recall.

Pinks and cremes turning to burgundys and browns

Hallowed, harrowing, but just... not... yet...

Ladies still donne skirts Uptown.

It's quiet in the land I remember.

Laughing, babbling brooks turn to clanking radiators

Warm winter boot heels need fixing up;

Leaving things here for later.

It's autumn in the land; I remember, I recall.

It's autumn in the land; trees stark, leaves fall.

It's autumn in the land...

...and I want it all.
