great pendulous melons dangled like gods
among the bunches of lesser berries
and the dazzled, half-drunken birds.
The heat of autumn
is different from the heat of summer.
One ripens apples, the other turns them to cider.
One is a dock you walk out on,
the other the spine of a thin swimming horse
and the river each day a full measure colder.
Fall has arrived: the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder… It’s the perfect season to cuddle up in a cozy corner with a book. We can’t wait!
