Autumn’s Golden Hour
Walk quietly here_
Lest birds be stirred to flight
By sounds of feet
Upon the russet leaves
Along the garden path.
Walk slowly through russet leaves
Lest you miss the beauty
Of the golden hour
That soon will be purple
Beneath autumn skies.
While life becomes imbued
With nature’s riches
And hopes that once were only dreams
Lie warm upon the heart.
