Poem in October
This poem recounts the musing of the poet on his 30th birthday. He resides in a port town. He wakes up early in the morning. He hears the familiar sounds of the harbor. He hears the sounds from the woods near by. There are welcome signs of the day dawning. There is the call of the sea gull and the rook. And the boats are knocking each other as the waves move them. The town is not awake. His Birthday begins with water, the symbol of life. He sees the birds that fly gaily in the morning. It is rainy autumn morning. He walked along enjoying himself the drizzle and recounting his past life.
