On the old road
Through cut barley and aspen
We rose from Summer
To ragged pines
And scattered snow--
A silent moon stared downward
But covers were warm
As we touched
In the night
--Waking early to Fall
And the stolid inevitability
Of Winter stars.

I can feel the chill of camping through your words and the changing seasons, smell the smells, anticipate the early morning fire in the pit. Thanks for this. Happy Autumn.

The imagery is brilliant in this piece, Sir. I could almost feel the brisk bite of the air, and the warmth of a companion under a blanket of stars. Very well written, Friend.
