Poem of the Day
  • Poem of the Day: The Aunts
    I like it when they get together
    and talk in voices that sound
    like apple trees and grape vines,

    and some of them wear hats
    and go to Arizona in the winter,
    and they all like to play cards.

    They will always be the ones
    who say "It is time to go now,"
    even as we linger at the door,

    or stand by the waiting cars, they
    remember someone—an uncle we
    never knew—and sigh, all

    of them together, like wind
    in the oak trees behind the farm
    where they grew up—a place

    I remember—especially
    the hen house and the soft
    clucking that filled the sunlit yard.
