Poetry Friday: To the Light of September

IMG_1077

Poetry Friday is hosted by Penny at A Penny and Her Jots. Thanks, Penny.

School’s back in session.  I saw the turning of leaves this week.  And the morning air is a bit more cool.

Here’s a poem to celebrate September.

To the Light of September
When you are already here
you appear to be only
a name that tells of you
whether you are present or not
and for now it seems as though
you are still summer
still the high familiar
endless summer
yet with a glint
of bronze in the chill mornings
and the late yellow petals
of the mullein fluttering
on the stalks that lean
over their broken
shadows across the cracked ground
                                      Read the rest at the Poetry Foundation
