North wind whispers in the spruce,
“Winter follows in my wake.”
Sleepy birch nod in agreementAnd cast their treasured gold adrift.
In September light they stand,
Watching over steaming lake.
Filligree’d with shaded frost,
And glistening where the sunbeam strikes.
With each and every zephyr’s sweeping,
The signs of summer glide away.
Soon denuded arms are reachingTo pull the shade of winter’s white.
Time for the SHAMELESS PLUG: As I've noted on the blog previously, I've been working on a second e-book volume in the Of Moose and Men series. IT IS FINALLY DONE AND AVAILABLE for download from Amazon for the Kindle. (If you don't have a Kindle, you can still read it, and other Kindle books, by downloading the free Kindle app.) If you would like to go to Amazon and check it out, click HERE FOR THE LINK. As always, I'd love to hear your comments and reviews. Thanks for your time.
