Tropic Autumn Comes - Poem by Barry Middleton

autumn comes in late rushes
in the warm moist wind

if you've been here long enough
you sense a change

intuition says the air is more sensible
this time of year

cooler temperaments will prevail
hurricanes are exhausted

in a few weeks the birds will come
blackbird and warbler

like refugees of the bleak cold north
they speak of fate

they speak of time's falling leaves
in a mimicry of death
