October's Walk

I walked alone, ‘neath empty skies
The skies, the skies were gray
The trees were bare, leaves blown far off
The building clouds were dark
The air was chill, the wind it blew
The lake in white caps danced
I walked alone, and looked around
And Autumn seemed to say
Yea, be afraid, for winter comes
And winds will cruelly blow
And snow will fall and keep you in
And ponds will freeze to ice
The geese, they know, and wing their way,
For warmer southern roosts
The birds will go, the bears will sleep
The world in icy quiet wait
And witness bear, will leafless trees
Just one more season, come and gone
And soon to come again.

The author's comments:
I spent a lot of time wandering emoishly around my family's farm last Fall. This is the result.
