Bittersweet October


Leaves bejewel while squirrels climb
the bearing branches. It’s a sign,
though daybreak birds still rise and shine.
October sighs invite this rhyme,
breathe slow adieu to summer’s clime—
within warm glowing noon sunshine
a growing chill begins to chime:
time it’s time it’s time it’s time.
Leaves tumble, crush like grapes to wine.
The pumpkin blazes on the vine.
