Fall came blowing in

Well, after all, Mel Torme did write the Christmas Song in July …

Fall came blowing in
Swept summer into yesterday
And all our dreams of reckoning with it.

Among these dead leaves
Wind-strewn and weary
Our footsteps fail to echo

The substance of our lives
Growing soft
Beneath the husk of a moon

Growing old
Too soon
