Indian Autumn - poem

Indian Autumn


Late, errant honeybees still swarm about

The hummers’ feeder in the afternoons

While lingering sunlight warms October days

Like lovers reluctant to say goodbye


Our little apian friends in chorus sing

A fading summer-song, before the frost

Send workers home among soft, leafy ways

Of air and mist, over stubbled fields at rest


In that quiet hour before the moon

Ascends, and lights the autumn safely home

Lawrence Hall
