The Monarchs have left us for another year,

They flutter away without memories of what was,

The maples fall to sleep in the autumn night,

Discarded leaves rustle beneath the foot,

Reminding us of yesterday’s dreams.


The harvest moon has come and gone,

Its last breath exhaled laying as frost upon the pumpkins,

So be it I stand un-quivered,

Caught in a moment of time,

That chill that brings us to heart,

When briefly the light struck the land,

Exposing what was forced into darkness,

Memories of the fallen whom hold promises of the past,

Waiting still to be fulfilled,

The eye of the north glazes from the darkness,

Stirring winds never to be forgotten,

That come down from the north to expose the truth,

An unpaid debt to be collected.


Hear the voices upon the wind,

Blowing incisively from the past,

Bringing a quiver in the autumn night,

Forcing the maples to bed,

And the monarchs south.
