Celebrating every little gift, every single day.

Wednesday, 30 October 2013


November is about to chase 
October from the stage
just now,
she holds her place, 

clutching hard
both to the gifts of summer, 

and her memories of spring.

All the while
her robes change colour 

and her glories fall at her feet.

Sweet October,
in nature as in life,
a transient glory,

but all the more precious
for her fragile beauty 

and her memories.
