What the Wind Left Us

In spring the tent worms
Gnawed the leaves to nubs
And left the brown woods
Fringed in green.

The summer’s record highs
Between crushing rains bent us
All down and swept away the rest.

So when fall came round, there wasn’t
Much hope of familiar peak.
No need to pack a day-trip lunch
Yesterday’s rain was blinding,
Driven by a mean push of wind.

What the wind left us:
The hills bound up with twigs
Wearing an old wool shirt
Found hung behind a door.
The Berkshires show me Fall.

Not perhaps like Louis’ glory
But more the glow
Of a slim gold ring
On a well-worn hand.

I've begun some serious development work on the WordPress version of this. If you want to see what's going on and give your two cents, you can click the Orientation::Quilter II link in the blogroll at left or go here. I'm sort of done with the styling of the two sidebars. Now it's on to the title area and the ordering of the main content area.

Jolly. That whole CSS thing is coming back to haunt me. Mainly what I spent last night doing is doing trial and error hunting to determine what style codes are attached to what (hence some of the funkier font uses still in place). Commenting! Or - CLEAR commenting code writers!
