Remembering November


Leaves in their thousands lay fallen in struggle
against wind and rain. The gardener futilely
holds back this autumnal onslaught in vain

'I am conscious of having served England
as I served my own country', the statue's

graffitti and spattered with wet rotting leaves)

So, rider, on horse, mars this fleur de lys
In praise of just war: an oasis of peace

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
