Poem: “September Saturday”

September Saturday

How I remember…

Apple-pie cobblers
Candy-corn gobblers

Chewing waxed lips
Wax bottle sips

Smouldering leaf piles
Autumn smoke hazed miles

Friday night pancakes
Thick syrup Mom makes

Skinned up knees falling hard
Running in the grade school yard

Nine at night give thanks and pray
For tomorrow’s a September…
