Autumn Falls

Many thanks to Lillian for giving us dVerse this week for which we are writing a quadrille using the word “fall.”

Autumn Falls

Fall arrived well before the first autumn clouds
the first chill before
leaves burnished crackled underfoot
not before the catbirds, cowbirds, and hummers
headed south though; their instincts sublimely superior
to temperature notes. Oh, the catbird notes
those mimicking, catty sounds, gone too soon.

I miss them.
