Monthly poem - September


Apples fall or fatten,
the earth is bone dry.
A fox barks in the wood.

Teachers move like shadows into school
re arranging lessons and their lives
under a bright blue sky;

last swim in the outdoor pool.
Books shut with a thud,
on a lazy afternoon, even poetry may be read and understood.

Jehane Markham is a true poet...
