Freeze warning

 I covered the tomato plants
just for the night.
The temperature dipping low
another harbinger of winter,
blowing in overnight
with the geese crying
and the leaves turning and losing their grip.
September's end demands winter's reckoning,
but I can't let go;
don't want to see black and dead,
frostbitten.
Not just yet...
Hold on to summer;
hold on.
Wrap it's remnants
with sheets of denial.
Keep the frost
from kissing death.
Keep winter dark at bay.
