Nature’s Pendulum

As darkness encroaches upon the day
And sun struggles to keep cold at bay
Autumn stalks like the predator prowls
As the dying days scream in silent yowls

Summer surrenders like wounded prey
Yearns a blue memory as it turns away
While autumn spreads its dark dominion
Gathering its withered and golden brethren

Descends the end like a tattered shroud
Mist torn summer quiescently bowed
And kingdoms go while kingdoms come
The inexorable swing of nature’s pendulum
