Juniper-Linden (original version of You Are Late of Autumn) by Richard Fox

There you are--
late of autumn, reader of books
and one after my own heart--
a penny for your thought.

The world will trend
the way it will--under linden
under juniper--I'll always
think of you as I pretend

to eat the living air or pull
an origami swan out of nowhere
or out of someone's ear.

Oh.. hey, how's Monsieur Fox doing these days? Oh, you probably don't know... not like you care or anything... forget I asked.
