Goose Summer

These mild, like summer, autumn days float 
with gossamer clouds and filmy spider webs 
moving slightly in the breeze and geese 
wedging to the lake overhead as I 
take off my goose-down vest and rest.

“Goose Summer” is a Middle English term for this kind of late summer weather. See my etymological explanation at whynameitthat.blogspot.com/…indian-summer-gossamer-and-goose-summer
