In Early December

In early December

November’s leaves still adorn

The woodland lawn.

Man’s pattern is made

In light and shade.

But the gardener’s rake

Rakes all leaves.

      Thank you, Liz. Looking at this again in the light of morning, I am torn as to whether the final line should read, “leaves no leaves”, rather than “rakes all leaves”. I shall think on that.

      Thanks, Liz. I think the use of the word “leaves” twice, in the last line just doesn’t look (or sound) right. I’m pleased you agree with my decision. Best wishes. Kevin
