It*s time

Maybe the trees were doing this yesterday, and I missed it.  The backyard is still pretty much green.  Today it felt like autumn arrived... suddenly.  It was as if the trees finally heard the birds gathering for migration.

Driving to church today
I saw the trees yesterday
Must have
Heard the birds say
It*s time
It*s time
It*s time
To change your clothes;
To think about the fall wardrobe;
To consider oranges, yellows,
Patches of burgundy;
Time to consider
Eventual trim of snow and ice,
Or mimic the oaks:
They wear their brown
Through the snow
Until the sap rises green
