The Fall Fell

The fall fell in a pond near here
And I fear and hear that winter is near
“Here here!” they say “the winter is near”
And so I can only feel what I felt that day
Just a few days before the fall fell..
In the glorious warmth of the mellows of yellow
“Hear hear” they say
“The yellows are mellow”

And now all we have left
Is the green of the evergreen .
All the other leaves are brown, and on the ground
