Fall Wind

Fall Wind

Pods of summer crowd around the door;
I take them in the autumn of my hands.

Last night I heard the first cold wind outside;
the wind blew soft, and yet I shiver twice:

Once for thin walls, once for the sound of time.

~ William Stafford

I like the phrases "pods of summer" and "autumn of my hands". Reading this poem makes me shiver, too! How about you?
