Local poet muses on the season

To the Editor:

Looking out the window, I saw my inspiration to do this – such a beautiful time of year. This is where we live.

Giving Thanks

It’s a golden world –
Late November in Vermont,
Maple trees shedding
Their leaves
Of red & gold—
The air is cool and damp—
Fall is here…

…but not for long!
Soon we’ll wake to find
A dusting of snowflakes
On our lawns and driveways –

Soon we’ll give thanks
In late November
For all that this year
Has given us,
And let us pray for those
less fortunate than us,
And especially for those
In power over us,
That they use their power wisely…
