Autumn Days

A poem for my British in - laws
Rosanne & Ron
who depart later today for
Great Crosby, Merseyside, England

I like what my friend Burnetta wrote:
"Kitti, I love that Gerry parents come over
and visit and get into the spirit of things.
That sounds loverly!"

One of those Autumn days
the light gets everything just right,
when crisper focus is unthinkable
and colours are absolute
about what colours want to be:

this common beech
on the cusp between green and brown,
brown's crux of desire,
green's determined surrender.
