Oc­to­ber Gold

Evergreen - - News - Sue Ger­rard

Bar­ren fields, bare trees As au­tumn lays siege to the Coun­try­side. Birds re­treat and Skies darken as win­ter, Fleet of foot, fast ap­proaches. Damp air ev­ery­where and a strug­gling Sun re­minds us that sum­mer Has gone... but Oc­to­ber’s flower Marigold, beau­ti­ful to be­hold, Tells us there’s still au­tumn Splen­dour to be seen. For early Christians “Mary’s Gold”, our marigold, brings Late harvest warmth and glow And the knowl­edge that there Is not far to go to spring.
