Walking down the memory lane
Stepping between the rows of naked trees
Crushing the golden leaves with heavy feet
Glancing at darkening frosty sky
Trying to smother another upcoming cry
Rekindling the memories of bygone spring
To bare branches a yellow leaf clings
Dying sun is defeated by the chill in the air
A lonely redbreast cry in despair
Oh, so much pain and disillusionment!
But there must be a spring to follow this autumn chill
It never lasts forever
And it never will
It was written in 1994, when I was in college and published in my college magazine. I found the old copy of the magazine in my trunk and was inundated with memories.
