Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield



Curved Corner

Vista From the Patio

Yonder leaves are slowly drying
     in the woods, where summer's green,
Once, a verdant state of succulence
     dieing now, transforms the scene.

Rolling hills of sunburned corn tops,
     rustling in the autumn air,
Tassels spread like worn mops,
     loosely deranged, thread-bare.

Walks littered with deciduous debris-
     depicts a sloven of womankind,
Gregarious crows call restlessly,
     through the Heaven's wind.

Fall, the end to summer pleasures,
     melancholy though it be,
Leaves a criterion for to measure,
     worthwhile things in life, still free.
