and with it goes
sweet white corn,
tomatoes plump with juice,
beans plucked from the vine,
Summer's filled with watermelon seeds,
blueberries picked beneath a sharp clear sky,
fresh garden peas and rhubarb pie.
pumpkins are sold from roadside stands.
Fruit is on the trees,
There is a wisp of frost.
It's time for basted grouse and applesauce.
