October 12 [Book of October]

October 12

For a while yet the walnuts
Will drop to the earth at night

Like exclamations about what
We forgot to do and now

It’s too late to do anything
But remember. Then

Next week a wind in the maple
Will turn the sky to stained glass

As what’s forgotten again
Again takes root
