End of Summer

 

I
put end of
summer
in a pail.


as

 glints of gold
began to fail


and 
winter came in
wind up from the river.


pulled eggplant, 
tomato;
left lettuce,
flowers
and some kale;

thought 
of cost, loss


and

of Frost,


the poet R.

i
wondered what

he might say

and i  prayed


for more

 

KINDNESS


in a coming
season.
