Lesley Young – Selected Poems #7

Autumnal Equinox

Yesterday, I watched
A proud, defiant sun
Rise above the cool, grey sea.

I felt the chill of summer’s passing
Only briefly,
As a hundred Swarovski crystals
Danced among the glassy waves
In rays of light
Like theatre.

A magical day, as long as night
The Autumn Equinox come at last
Reminds me
That for all my waiting,
Sure as the seasons
Everything must change.

Last night, I lit a candle
And sang my song
To celebrate.
