Autumn

  
Two trees

blocked my path today

stopped me on my precious way

put my whole life on hold

when did trees become so bold

all great things I might have done or thought

would not now be forever lost and forgot

had I not met them standing there

had I just simply stepped aside

had I not paused to stop and stare

had I just slowly closed my eyes

I had only to turn away and run

to have escaped tall trees and sun

Oh I could still be swift walking oblivion

had I never stopped for trees.
