ADIEU   TO   THE   DAY


A walk down the lane on an autumn's day
Though grey clouds strangle the gleam of sun
The tales you can read from the hedgerows below
Nature's story has again fought and won

Surprised rabbits run from their hides and back
And squirrels search for a pleasing scrap or two
A cascade of trees saying adieu to the light
As the darker months come into view

Elderberries hang in huge black clusters
People with baskets collect blackberries for a pie
Scrambling the deep embankments
For the juiciest are far from the eye

Fragrant pine cones rest on the ground so deep
A blanket of rich carpet with shades of magnificent red
The roots of all Mother Earth's creations are now
Tucking themselves tidily into winters bed
