Description

Poetry of nature. In Fall she writes: "the black oaks / fling their bronze fruit / into all the pockets of earth / pock pock / they knock against the thresholds / the roof the sidewalk / fill the eaves / the bottom line / of the old gold song / of the almost finished year."

-- From "Spiders", p.46
