Wait till next year!

"For the second year in a row

I’ve let things go, neglected the golden

Platter-size leaves the maples discarded

All through golden October, that layered themselves

To a four weeks’ deepness, the days and long nights of October

Dense with the soft undertones of their falling.''

-- From "Raking the Leaves,'' by John Engels (1931-2007), a Vermont poet.
