The will

The Will 
 The trees down the hillside have taken a more sober hue
 yellow, pale green and brown, despite the weather tries
  to pretend it is still summer and tourists wear sunglasses 
  when in jeeps they explore the mystic interior away from 
 sandy beaches and summer charming waiters who hope 
 the summer  will last  forever, without it they will soon be
 unemployed, yes, like it or not fall is here in all its glory,
 and it is also the time when I must write my will.

I stop at a layby and compose my testament, the house 
goes to my wife and money left in the bank after 
the funeral expenses. My literary estate goes to my 
brother, which means he gets nothing of value, anyway
he hates poetry, so this is my sweet revenge.
But I love fall and hope to live to see another one.

    Jan - I love you and don't know how I'll ever catch up with all I've missed this month. When you write about wills and old age and Fall, I am taken so completely. Your poetry is worth a pot of a gold. Whoever gets mine on computer will have a hard time as I have no real filing method. kmc
