Sum
By Jewell Bothwell Tull
 
From “October”

JUST when the year learns
  What life is all about,
Just when she learns it’s not youth
  Nor summer’s hot kisses
Nor even maternity,        5
Just when she knows
  What it’s all for—
Winter and spring and summer,
The sum of it—October!
 
Next month you’ll be so gray and tired,        10
And then so still and white.
October!
