A woodpecker raps a rotary phone tone
Then redials because he gets no answer.
Staccato hammer on a hard wood tree
To the beat of a madcap tap dancer.

Trees resplendent in their Autumn finest
A silhouette for a blue cloudless sky.
Cold dark shadows crawl across the wet grass
A black hawk is weaving circles on high.

Fallen leaves crackle and crunch underfoot.
Plump squirrels gather nuts for the Winter
Chipmunks scurry across worn man-made paths
Like kids darting through a garden sprinkler.

The sun's casting spears of light through the trees.
You can almost hear the falling leaves drop.
There's a vague sense of what we all may have lost
When we were expelled from that first garden spot.

Pays one point and 2 member cents.
