Just One Day Later,
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
No longer I hear the wood thrush singing,
The calm ascending, pausing, descending
Of those remote, high-pitched notes I so love.
The songs of the other birds in these woods
No longer sound the same song of summer.
The leaves look just as green, and the sun rains
Down with all its life-sustaining power;
Yet, this hidden shift surely to pass came!
The death of the Lady Summer draws near;
But the very next day, the Lady Fall
Will celebrate her birthday yet again.
To me, summer's shine and autumn's glory
Hold the implications of one story.
Long live Lady Nature! What a fair thing!
The cicadas proclaim their twilight call!
The Lady Fall, with her leaves turned pastel,
Shares what the Lady Summer likely felt.
Summer or autumn, the theme of caring
Endures. Some things stay the same after all!
