I Still Prefer the Autumn


Summer wallowed in the aisles.
The day’s were long, the shadows longer.
Nights, though short, were pregnant with
Romance that in the dark grew stronger.
Somewhere in between the dusk
And darkness, youth’s fraternity
Stretched out in all directions, taking
Soundings through eternity.
We thought those times would never end.
The world was young. The nights were rich,
And we as friends would never part;
We thought – but life can be a bitch,
And summers stumble all too soon.
Unseen they turn to autumn days,
And like the leaves, unknowingly,
We fell into our separate ways.
I sometimes wonder what became
Of all the friends that flew the nest.
But not for long. For all of that,
I still prefer the autumn best.
