Back 40: Autumn’s Brown Grass

Autumn’s brown grass
is a heart beating for winter,
for spring that becomes summer,
for summer that fades to autumn
and autumn’s brown grass.

Autumn’s brown grass
is a heart beating for bears and wolves,
their bodies moving, then stopping,
then moving again across open miles
of autumn’s brown grass.

Autumn’s brown grass
is a heart beating for light
and for darkness, for the place
where they touch, call it dusk, call it dawn,
call it autumn’s brown grass.
