Her Fall

autumn sundial


Her alibi is iron-clad –

Time is standing still;

Heart has fallen like the leaves,

Swallowing the will.

She didn’t mean to lose herself,

Get taken at the flood;

He swept her off her willing feet

When Love began to bud.

    It’s the sundial! Looking very autumnal. I hardly know it without its snow covering.

  4. Beautiful! Such is love…

  5. Well, at last!! My fave, the sundial–I ran across a few photos of them in my file, but they mostly look summery so I’m not sure I’ll be able to use them well. Thanks so much–I enjoy this autumnal timepiece.

    I love Melody’s poetry, and believe you’ll understand as to why I do with this poem, and others you’ll find at her site.
