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.

In Early December

In early December
I heard
The dawn bird
And did remember
Another year
Will soon end.

My friends
Are growing older.
I hear
Pretty young women
Ask me
About family matters.

There will be
No more sinning.
Merely hot tea
And matters
Of domesticity
For me.
