cool grey morning

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

cool grey morning
sounds of water to shore
choir of birds seems smaller
today or a portent of change?

a gold leaf on the birch tree
that teaches me year-by-year
to let go and rest and work again
each day and week as I can

this year though I do not hurry
to the rich autumn colors
resting instead in grey skies
and green fields
