Once Upon a Sidewalk

Darkness falls earlier.
Shorter days and time change,
change the atmosphere
of a simple walk downtown.

Shorter days and time change.
Downtown feels cosmopolitan
though it’s only three blocks long.
Lighted windows and inviting warmth.

Downtown feels cosmopolitan.
Coffee shops and frozen custard.
College students à la mode
smiling at the one holding my hand.

Coffee shops and frozen custard.
Frozen treats from the warmth of inside.
Looking out at the sidewalk, watching
as home passes by the window.
