Subject(s): Autumn; Seasons; Fall

Portent hangs low in blue September skies
As beauty quickens to the challenged fling
Of death. Now the least flutter of a wing
Holds deep significance; each shadow lies
Submissive, nor the law of change denies
The mutable transition. Deep yearnings cling
To heart and mind yet hold grave questioning
Of amber days that fade to watching eyes.

The world has never been so richly blessed
With loveliness, nor man so great a range
From sea to sea, nor has his heart possessed
Such humble and exotic things. How strange,
Incomprehensible that life is pressed
To peace and silence by this vivid change!
