Fall comes almost too early

Bringing with it distant memories

Wings shifting and stirring about

Bright colors of the landscape almost cease


Covered in a new autumn coat

All the world will soon change

Missing now are the lively little birds

That once so sweetly chirped and sang


Clouds begin to covet a darkness

As the leaves lose their places

Heavier coats show upon the scene

Pulled up around chilled faces


Pools of water begin to freeze

And each new day beckons a little cold

Soon, all will be gently covered

When the winter storms take their hold

    So true. It seems as though the pleasant days are so short nowaday and autumn comes to fast. I loved this poem and its reverent sadness.
