Autumn People

Autumn people linger at their tasks
they don't worry at what wasn't done today-
a seemly easygoing lot.

Summer people are always hurrying to do more
than longer daylight hours allow-
an unsettled group they are.

Winter persons are never seen about
worn out thinking of the work from summer-
a tired bunch I think.

Spring folk are just young summer people
they can't wait to turn the clock ahead-
an impatient brood.

It's Autumn people I feel closest to...
they're as colorful as a the leaves on a maple-
a breath of fresh October air.

I am an Autumn being lingering at my taks
not worrying about chores to be done.
