Hockey season, football season, learning season.
New clothes, new classes, warm days, cool evenings.

Poplar leaves issuing their final applause, call of south-bound geese.
Quality of sound in the early autumn air, scent of smoldering leaves.
Final garden harvests and feasts,  preparations for a long slumber.
Family Day? My birthday? Hallowe'en? The boy's birthday?

What is is about Fall that I love so much?

This time next year, this time last.
 Ever ahead, ever behind.
