Blue Moon and Lammas

I turn again 
as in days before
Observing times 
of ancient lore
There within 
a comfort found
Connections to 
ancestral ground 
Watching as 
the sun does travel
Even as silks 
of corn unravel
Dark returns 
day by day
Chasing warmth 
and light away
Balance waits 
just weeks ahead
When once again 
the trees shall shed
Their golden gowns 
drop to the ground
Grain and nuts 
which now abound
Will in cellar 
and granary reside
And Summer's warmth 
in our hearts abide
