Like A Whisper In The Wind - Poem by Cecil (C.J.) Krieger

Today the leaves fell
While the rain tumbled down
Uncaring, indiscriminately on all below

As the earth turned so did the weather

I watched from my window
As summer leisurely fled south
Down the old roads
Roads that it had so often traveled
And knew so well

Off to the north
A wind with the chill of winter
Told stories of the coming cold

And my window
Which always opened to the warmth of the sun
Remained closed giving me shelter

I remember
When I was much younger
That years lasted forever
And seasons fought the onslaught of change
These days
The years fly like an eagle
And are gone like a whisper in the wind
