I hear rain falling
rush to put my jacket on
but it’s only leaves
New expression learnt:
“fall peepers” come tree viewing –
New England autumn
She invited me into the Black Sheep fold,
a place where seasonal peach pie is sold.
Other shepherdesses might need a crook or hook,
but I needed no coaxing to go visit Amherst books!
(Tonight – I was delighted to meet up with Marya Zilberberg of Arkadia blog [please go check out her poetry]. Amherst bookshop stays open late and has a very big poetry collection. I was fueled with tasty coffee from a place across the road called Black Sheep, so the combination of coffee, books, and good company, inevitably led to some book buying.)
