Autumn melancholy / Poem by Alicja Maria Kuberska

 
Poem by Alicja Maria Kuberska
 
 
 
Autumn melancholy
 
Melancholy returned home in November
and she started to live in all the rooms
She placed dim light in the windows
and scattered the seeds of sorrow on the threshold
 
In the evenings, she summons ghosts and memories
Her relatives resurrect from old photos
and they tell forgotten stories and anecdotes
Their lives take again timid blushes
 
Look – she announces to all her friends
Laughing pumpkins and cascades of rustling candies
do not match my interior decorations at all.
I don’t open my door to the bunches of impish kids
