The Business of Autumn

Listen to poem:
The Business of Autumn David J Walker 1. The season of dry clouds and Canada Geese Arrived over the weekend 2. The weatherman says the freeze was too light last night to have been noticed 3. A frost is in the forecast but rescheduled for some other tomorrow 4. The full moon demands homage deserving its observations 5. before the sun sets on another harvest 6. The farms have formed seas of ripe corn and white cotton 7. bordering a thousand small towns in every direction 8. allergens release in the winds the invisible seeds of misery 9. The last days and nights of the whine of cotton gins bailing good fortune 10. The business of autumn comes to an end On the fairway of a county fair 11. The next rain will be cold and will Hold its verdict … Ice or snow… until after Thanksgiving
