Autumn departure signals

seems to fly quicker
as geese take flight
heading south,
leaving us stranded
in their wake.
We gaze skywards,
not wanting
to believe the arial V
is a sign
of victory for them,
perhaps it is,
but not for us
left preparing
for the long
winter ahead.
Stay with us
we call out
just awhile longer
in fields abundant of corn
autumns colours
signal their departure
and we sigh...
