The messages of Autumn...
Autumn leaves Southeast Texas,
and goes somewhere else to play.
Summer drags on until November,
dropping a hurricane along the way.
Autumn leaves me breathless,
When and where it is fully displayed.
A palette of many colors,
woven into a fine brocade.
Autumn leaves are precious,
we press them into books.
Where they become faded,
and lose their precious looks.
Autumn leaves me speechless,
at men and their games.
As football frenzy strengthens,
my hope for mankind wanes.
For autumn is a time to reflect,
and prepare for winter's wrath.
Not a celebrated war of cities,
down gambler's addiction path.
Autumn leaves me helpless,
with the passing of the years.
September's song was sweet,
but December slowly nears.
Autumn leaves me wistful,
that with every passing year,
our dreams will be forgotten,
after coming, oh so, near.

|"Autumn leaves me wistful" is a powerful statement of concern for mankind Ron. As for realization of our dream, perhaps the tea leaves long ago decided, we will grow no nearer. Seasons in time, seasons of the heart and mind. You visited both and one, nature's, is beautiful. The other, man's autumnal season, filled with the despair of reality. Love and peace to you my friend. Jon Michael|
