3 Poems by Susandale

September

A golden hush
Crimson and bronze days
And the earth willing
I am not
To relinquish autumn
To smoke-silvered November

The crying song of geese
Curling clouds in the skies
And in the margins of my dreams
Autumn lingers long


October

Hold autumn close
When the sun strikes broadside
Reach into its heart of gold
One last moment

Plunder her golden orb
On the path of summer’ glory
A whispered lullaby
To rock cradle of sleep
October –  on the outskirts of summer dreams
Drink deep the poem of autumn


November, 2014
 
November with its penitential air
It’s faded shutters of sun

Melancholy lady
carrying a candle
flickering through the fog
