"Leaves" by Lloyd Schwartz

I taught “Leaves” in class before, this past spring to be precise.  I came across it again during my search today spurred by an intuition I felt that my class needed something else in addition to the other content I had planned for my new students.  The poem feels particularly pertinent and important this time around, not only because it’s actually October, but in the wake of losing a friend, this breathy blip of insight and perspective is very much welcomed.  Hope you can fit its kind of golden light into your own crimson-filled fall.
