Spiritual and Inspirational poetry that touch the heart and soul, and provoke the mind.

Poetry by Mary T. Hoffman

The morning sun burns through

a purplish haze

To bare the valley's patchwork

red and gold.

A deep contentment lingers o'er

these days

Of mellowness forestalling

winter's cold.

The future jack-o'-lanterns,

orange and round,

Contrast with cornstalks standing

brown and spare.

Bright-colored leaves fall gently

to the ground

And join the rustling crowd

already there.

Published 27 August 1977 in The Daily Mail (Catskill, NY)
