Aubade: Late Summer

Walk across grass

bruised brown by August


beneath sky

pearled with rain’s forebirth


morning freshens with sparrowchant

livens with leafbreeze


heaven silvers slightly

behind her cloudcurtain


and the workworld

wakes and walks

through weal and woe

through noise and news

through blight and blessing

I re-echo Lawrence Beck's comment. This is lovely. :)
