Such Small Wonders

Such small wonders this autumn yields...                
watch the squirrel busily collecting nuts
stashing them away for winter's depths 
let's hope he remembers where they are

The apple trees heavily laden, branches sag
ponies happily munching at the wind falls
tractors hard at work bringing in the crops
piling it up in the barns, ready for winter

Lazy smoke drifting from the chimney pots
carrying  heavenly smells of roasting meats 
cattle lowing,  announcing  it is milking time 
I drink these wonders in, happy to be alive
