Polecat Creek (second posting)

by Leonard M Hawkes

Golden Autumn
Brought us here

Earth's own heat
About us,
In us;

Our ears
Full of story,
Eyes, blind
With sun,
But memories
Of Winter--

Skis and snow,
Bare feet
On crusts of ice,
Excoriating cold,
Irrepressible grippe

Before the dip
In Yellowstone's
Endless summer.


Author's Note: October at the Hot Springs (Yellowstone).
