September 1991

September went by
like a prolonged sigh
that I hardly even noticed
In anticipation of another
I didn’t care to bother
to take in her shimmering grace
& on this October day
the thought came my way
that I’ve let slip this year’s only September
The moment has passed
like a bubble of glass
all is still & summer’s lost its glow
