Autumnal Performance

The last rays of summer

The last rays of summer

As we here in the northern climes observe the Autumnal Equinox, those in the Southern Hemisphere celebrate the Vernal Equinox and the first day of their spring. Both seasons have their own music. Here are some notes of Fall:

Autumnal Performance

Sun appears to sink as Earth turns and tilts;
Evenings grow longer and our summer wilts.
Flowers nod and wink, their plants droop and die,
Casting seeds adrift in a darkening sky.

Boisterous flocks of grackles rally around,
While squadrons of geese are southward bound.
Crickets and robins chirp their closing songs,
And birds visit feeders in growing throngs.

The Summer embers glow a fond farewell
Hissing and cooling before the last knell.
But then there’s a sputter and a spurt of flame:
Trees burst into color, singing Autumn’s name.

The stage is ablaze with scarlet and gold,
A final act before the world turns cold.
Corn shocks and pumpkins–the scenery’s set:
Mother Nature assumes her role of coquette.

An encore performance…players take their bows
To a standing ovation and exclamatory “wows!”
Soon applause will fade, the audience drift away
The music will cease; She will have had her day.

Winds will banish the costumes and props,
Stripping trees down, revealing their tops.
Leaves hurrying along with no place to go,
Will await their blanket of fresh fallen snow.

Take heed of these changes; don’t hesitate long…
‘Cause before you know it, Fall will be gone.
So come seize this moment to dance and sing,
For too soon the Silence will Winter bring.

Celebrate the spinning of our Orb’s race
Through the stardust mists of time and space,
Comforted in knowing that while subdued,
Renewal and Life will be…continued…

Happy Autumnal Equinox
