Eulogy for September

Long before the leaves
have begun to fade,
department store aisles
embrace autumn's shade,
adorned with the yellows,
oranges, reds, and greens
of Halloween, Thanksgiving,
and even Christmas scenes.
In such a hurry
to savor the moment,
mankind loses the minutes
twixt the tide and current.
So long, September,
we hardly knew ye;
under autumn's heel
you'll forever be.
