When fall falls

When it comes to leaves, what goes down must come up. As many homeowners and anyone who parks underneath a tree these days can attest, the leaves are falling. This leads to leaf blowers roaring, rakes being unlimbered and the annual appearance of “the claw.”

Force of Nature

The Storm — By Emily Dickinson, 1896 There came a wind like a bugle; It quivered through the grass, And a green chill upon the heat So ominous did pass We barred the windows and the doors As from an emerald ghost; The doom’s electric moccasin That very instant passed. On a strange mob of panting trees, And fences fled away, And rivers where the houses ran The living looked that day. The bell within the steeple wild The flying tidings whirled. How much can come And much can go, And yet abide the world!
