Tidewater Canto

I hear birds pouring song
into the red maples
like Autumn Water
telling of  flight and bloom
chill and heat,
you and me
walking in a southeast wind.
Our shadows  fallen
on the old road --
peelings from this fruit
our bodies have become,
settler-ripe, offered
to a homestead
hungering for love.
Impressionistic artwork is by French artist, Henri Le Sidaner and titled "Window In Autumn".
