John Tustin – 1 poem

IN THE APPROACHING DARK OF AUTUMN

            

In the approaching dark of autumn

I hear her song come lilting in to me

On these breezes that slow, then cease.

            

I sing my own songs and they go out

And float along other breezes until

They come gently into her own sad room.

            

In the approaching dark of autumn

Her songs reach my ears and mine hers.

Never will we meet, our songs now lying flat

            

On our own floors.
