17 October

the road through the wood

 smells of autumn

in October

we walk in dappled sunlight

and it's all lacy leaves of orange and yellow

footsteps crinkle and shuffle

and kick up leaves

as we go traipsing along

to the high field

where the deer come out

to feed in the twilight

we are going back again tomorrow

acorns and yellow feathers and giant oak leaves
 await us there

treasures of infinite value
