"A Time for Counting"

A poem by John Hearn, inspired by Autumnal Miniatures.

A Time for Counting

Aged by the swift season of the sun,
I see the children of April,
Brown and crimson in the North wind,
Casting hopeful seeds
To chance winter beds.

Autumn is a time for counting,
For thinking of what use the
Warm days were put,
While evening silhouettes
The stark loveliness of naked trees,
And Orion shoulders the weight of winter.
