Haiku for Autumn

Lawrence Hall

Haiku for Autumn

Autumn grass browning
Pale, cold, high, austere blue skies
Children in Sweaters

An early chilling
Brisk north wind blowing away
Summer’s hot dampness

Autumn and a pipe
Smoked under a hill-top oak
Watching the geese fly

Early, icy fogs
In the rotting wood hollows
Wind in the pine tops

Men smoke, chew, and talk
Shotguns, dogs, woods, trucks, and bucks -
Almost deer season!
