  October's Child

Has Time Slipped Away




 
Chameleonic getaways; an old wishing well
An imaginary audience awaiting her tale
A master performer in her own seasons
Dressing well, under a canopy of reasons

************

Cinnamon surroundings amid tender shades
Of Mardi Gras mornings and Easter parades
A deep South rendition of southern charm
White lace parasols, her gentleman's arm

************

Plantations and rose gardens, weeping willow trees
White-fenced honeysuckles, tea, if you please
The knelling of bells, an old church steeple
Cupped in the shadows an angelic people

************

The wind turns the pages; she holds the book
Who's picking jasmine, alone, by the brook
She steps from the script into the next day
But has it vanished; has time -- slipped away


************

Le temps s'est-il esquivé ?
