Seasons of Life by Audrey Cofield

Curved Corner

Autumn Melancholy

The wind in eerie cadence
is moaning round my door,
As if to gently tell me
the summer days are o're.

I sit and watch each falling leaf
as they go wafting by,
But do not seem to understand
just why things have to die.

It is a plan beyond our reach
in which we have no say,
We merely climb, the tread-mill of time,
and await the final day.
