Wait For Me

autumn slough

 

Wait for me at water’s edge,

Where Autumn meets the sky,

Where trees in wigs stretch sapless twigs

And watch the geese fly by.

.

Wait for me where harvest hides,

Where Wind paints reveries,

Where evenings slip with frosty grip

By picturesque degrees.

.

Wait for me where Time stands still,

Where seasons wax and wane,

Where Dew withdraws from icy paws

‘Til only earth remains.

 

When Winter Thaws

Sparkle-shadows hem you in,

Marshmallow caps where growth has been;

Wait, my soul, be still, and pause,

Spring will bloom when Winter thaws.
