This week, on my morning walks, I've been seeing (and hearing) geese flying overhead. It's been very warm here so we drove to the lake today. We saw a lot of geese just kind of hanging out. I wondered if it was a rest stop, or if they are taking their good old time because it feels more like summer than fall. Cooler temps are coming next week, and with snow already in the Midwest, winter is on its way. It's time for them to get going!
Fly south geese go—soon the earth will be covered
in ice and snow— it’s time
to leave for warmer winds,
go now before winter begins.
