“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.” ― Jim Bishop

Too few are the days of layered-leaves, 

those nippy fall afternoons we wander 

under the golden boughs full of blazing 

foliage that beseeches us to linger

in the fading light, cozy under our scarves

and mittens and filled with expectancy

for the change that must come. 

If only we could hold to those in-between 

weather-ways that feel so much

like the most treasured memories

of childhood.
