UPSTATE NEW YORK AUTUMN
By Mary T. Hoffman

White clouds touch
pale blue hills
of Catskills
west of us.

Honking geese
flee southward
through gray sky;

chill wind blows
remaining
red/gold leaves
past windshield;

mustiness,
autumn’s scent,
fills the air.

Revelry
and tumult
usher in
November’s
somber mood:

crisp bronze leaves
clinging to
dark oak limbs.
