He Was Otherwise Engaged

He was otherwise engaged
as the leaves began to turn
from green to red ablaze,
and thoughts did churn,
while missing October’s display.
Look up! Let your heart yearn
after nature’s artful gift today.
And so it often is to spurn
with thoughts and blank gaze
what God has etched on creation’s urn.
