Farewell for autumn

Let us not pretend

The world will stop

With our silent departure

Through nooks and crannies of days bygone.


Let us not pretend

When our eyes will meet again

Amid the ocean of strangers

In the oblivious heart of a cosmopolis

You will recognize me and smile.


Both you know and I

That the last Goodbye

Remains silent, falling like a crimson leaf of the fall.

Our words and memories

Dying away like your receding footfall.

The chirping sparrows will fly away now for warmth

And I

Will stand beneath this maple wood

Until the last leaf has fallen

Like my wistful heart.
