Leaves – quadrille for Dverse

She leaves notes, scattered,
Haphazard, or tucked
In unexpected places.
She counts the swallows
Gathering on the wires,
Numbers the sloes turning
Midnight in the hedgerows,
Doodles webs in the
World’s margins. And each note
In her fading hand says, simply,
“Autumn is coming”.

 

 

This is a quadrille for Dee at Dverse. The magic word is “leaves”.

  1. Heavens. LOVE this:
    “She counts the swallows
    Gathering on the wires,
    Numbers the sloes turning
    Midnight in the hedgerows,
    Doodles webs in the
    World’s margins.”

    Oh, my. Cannot tell you how much I adore this.
