In Memory Of Emily

The park is awash with Autumn -
russet rustling like drizzle on crystal;
reds and golds falling in a blaze of Glory,
knowing the story always comes to this end
before turning again and starting anew…
Acorns drum a tattoo
on the broad shelf of the bench
(“in memory of Emily,
a poet who found inspiration here”)
