Seasonally Home

I pack away summer clothes
to a soundscape of Vivaldi.
The songs of summer birds
have settled like dust.

I stand at the window,
watch leaves fall across the yard,
overcome by a sensation
I cannot deny:

My heart is in a dance
with autumn's return.

(From the books Selected Poems 2004-2007
and Collected Poems)
