I only felt autumn's presence
In October, in Hamburg
A month after she was expected

Crisp leaves, warm light
Geese on the lawn by the lake
And loneliness
Stretching through short days and long nights
Heralds of winter's coming

Shoes worn thin by miles
I wander, a stranger, mute
Head full, heart singing
The love of dark trunks and bright leaves
Untempered by geography
Or language
Autumn has finally arrived. Winter will soon follow.

EDIT: Thank you all so much for the favourites and comments on this piece. I was utterly shocked to receive a DD after pootling along in the dA universe fairly anonymously for so many years. A special thank you to Lili for recommending it for DD-dom. Amazing love to that girl.
