A Poem by Fay Slimm

 

 

Bonus.

 

Now dawn is slowly brindling the heavens
with gold russet striations of honey-tone 
change appearing as September mellows
swaying meadows of tall harvest bonus.
*
*
*
Now day bows to bewhiskering greenness
as autumn begins its downward chorus,
fields growing tawny with corn's ready ears
show time shoulders sything ever forward.
*
*
*
Now roots wriggle in before double-deep
chill urges races for freeze-proof cover
and as underneath fingers curl for sleep
garden work waits until winter is done.
*
*
*
Now we lay aside season's spent labour
after nurturing yield to welcome rest
and remember summer helps us savour 
      abundance if we now plan for the next.

What a bloomin brilliant celebration of autumn you have crafted Fay... that strategic planning will of course eventually pay dividends ... and you also know how to make words look so darn good on the page where they writefully belong ....
