"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.
