Autumn came with ghostly calls
sun has shrunk on low tide shore
butterflies have flown for good
leaving us anchored here .
I met you on a winter’s day
by chance came knocking on your door,
your troubles made you stay away
but autumn’s wind has tied our knot
written us a new love score.
I’m left, you’re right
I’m green you’re blue
we couldn’t be more different
but something’s tied between us two
& the autumn wind
with its winnowing breath
is loath to let us go.
