A touch chilly this morning

Too Soon

Too soon the fall,
with tomatoes left green,
peppers small
and summer chores
languid in a jar …

Where then the picnic planned
and bathing in the stream –
and evening walks to wave at strangers?

Too soon the fall
of graying hair
as cobwebs in attic dreams
of being more of spring’s promise
than fading light.

Why is it that the seasons seem to turn faster as we age?

Perhaps, dear friend --
because we plant less
and harvest more,
with summer doldrums
crushed in between --
and winter snows
a time to rest.
