A False Autumn

Today I could swear,
with the cold, dead downpour drizzling away
the humid insouciance of honeysuckle lounging on the vine
and pushing the pretty faces of spring down into the mud,
that if I shut my eyes
to the leaping lilac and wild waving iris
I could almost smell wood smoke and the scent of burning leaves;
I could almost taste the beguiling nostalgia of youth.
