Times are a-Changing


Iowa has put on its fur coat
The squirrels already have theirs
They have more important things to attend to:
Like foraging and storing nuts
Some birds are still singing
To the tune of fall leaves falling
Like gems covering the earth
Ready for the coming freeze
No fur coat to pull her through the cold — our good earth
Just the sun’s rays — her covering
Age has taught her patience.
