Their Watching Faces

Carpe Diem Special #120 Richard Wright's "their watching faces"
use the 5-7-5 rule ...

Their watching faces,
as I walk the autumn road
make me a traveler.

their black eyes watching
my movements in the garden
crows in the maple

in the autumn wind
the mournful cry of the geese
circles around me

lonely autumn road
hurriedly walking homeward
in freezing cold rain
