dearest Vermont…

autumnal hues longed for…
colors woven…
life in death…

firey reds…
golds…
deep blood orange…

and Vermont was my home…
a Dodge was my house…
parked on a dead-end street…

night-air cool blown from Canada’s Quebec…
a belly never filled…
thoughts always racing…

and the gas tank was empty…
pockets inside-out…
thousand miles away…

autumnal hues longed for…
colors woven…
life in death…

living on French-fries…
cups of coffee gratis…
kind words…

i miss you…
our impoverished affair…
dearest Vermont…

mountains and rivers…
chapped lips wanting to be kissed…
fall days…fall days…leaves were our blankets…

let me return…
lay by your side…
this i beg…

renew our love…
your warmth…given freely…
one with you Vermont…to be one with you…

i shall come…
bringing a bouquet…
look for me at summer’s end…summer’s end…

autumnal hues longed for…
colors woven…
life in death…
