Autumn and the Leaves

Autumn and the Leaves



I used to love fall and raking the leaves,


The brisk winds and the outside chores.


Now my back and knees and arms have their peeves,


So I have the yard guys do it.


 


Now that’s just not satisfying to me,


But it’s the life I must lead now.


The red flowers in front and bumble bees


Speak of autumn as I go out.


 


It’s cool tonight – I think I’ll light the fire,


Watch the flames and daydream a while.


For dream castles – think I’ll find a buyer?


They’re mostly dreams of yesterdays.


 


Maples turning red – on my way to church-


I wish those leaves would stay longer,


Because each autumn, I go there in search


Of that tree I like so much.


 


The most beautiful one they’ve now cut down.


Years ago I took a picture.


When I pass there now it’s without a frown.


I just go home and look at it.
