On Wednesday, the wind began to blow
so out I went to check the apple tree.
I took a bag in case. I didn’t know
if there’d be apples left, but lucky me
picked just enough to fill a big glass bowl.
I also saw a sweet pea and a rose!
The little oak tree’s leaves have reached their goal
of turning burnished copper ~ how it glows!
I know its leaves will fall just like the rest
although they won’t have far to drop, it’s true!
No wonder people love this season best
as nature harvests seeds to start anew.
I’m glad my back is starting to improve!
Today it didn’t hurt as much to move.
