An Autumn Baby

I only have her
For the morning.
Later she can
Enjoy to the full
Everything the day
Can bring her.

She has places to go,
People to see,
And others to love;
This is my hope.
It's her spring,
But my autumn:

So I pray for a
Golden day of leaves
Falling deeply into
A fruitful country,
Because I only have her
For the morning.
