Autumn In Florida

I shall return to Florida In late autumn, a driving trip When blooms have lost their stamina, And I shall need to get a grip. Surely before the first cold spell Settles in, ere the first snowfall I shall find a small place to dwell Near the seashore where I can scrawl Short verses on sandy beaches, Where children collect fresh seashells And play well above the reaches Of the tide, I love ocean smells. A watch on the skies I will keep Lest a storm strikes while I'm asleep.
