Not Entirely

So many Autumn tales are told
Of days among the forests gold;
I learned them, breathless, as a child
Dreaming of the woodlands wild

But when and how the earth became
Commotion, chaos, blood, and blame,
I couldn't say, but still confess
I miss that storied wilderness

For we are not entirely mad:
Comparing what we have, and had,
We can move forward, AND reset,
And find the best of both worlds
