Sure signs

We’re finally getting rain in Southern California, another sign that fall is here, winter is to follow. Here is another poem from Ted Kooser, one of my favorites, for this Monday’s Poem of the Week.

So many crickets tonight –
like strings of sleigh bells!
“A long hard winter ahead
for sure” my neighbor says ,
reeling a cobweb onto
a broom in his garden .
“Crickets and cobwebs “ he says,
“sure signs. In seventy years
(he looks over his glasses
to see if I am still there)
you get to know a thing or two.”
