The golden days are drawing near
A faint chill is in the morning air,
It's time to listen for the honking geese
Winters passage to declare.

Shake off the driest parch of summer
It's ways are all complete,
I must now display my welcoming wreath
To prepare the earth for sleep.

Farewell your friend of yesterday
Mourn, as he softly drifts from view,
Now is the time to embrace my colors
Our relationship re-new.

You will remember me when you draw aside
As your theatrical friend,
A paradox of swirling wind and balmy nights
And beauty deep within.

I shall glow with wonder here before you
To explode with rich delights,
The vibrancy of my Creator will unfold His joy
A feast before your eyes.

Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems

At some point in life the world's beauty becomes enough.
You don't need to photograph, paint or even remember it.
It is enough.
Toni Morrison, Tar Baby, Signet Books
