In this special feature of our issue today, we are running “Note from California,” a poem taken from Michael Finch’s new collection of poetry, Finding Home.
Note from California
I miss the northern wind.
I miss the smell of harvest corn,
Leaves burning sweet in autumn sky,
Long walks down your covered path.
I miss the sound of the winter’s eve,
Howling winds from corners’ bend.
Soft falling snow covers the scar —
World gone mad so swift in time.
Rise, sweet earth, so fertile and alive,
To spring, gentle rain, bring forth
From slumber’s deep rest
The world replenished.
Give us another year of seasons’ song.
I miss the high sky.
I miss the fires burning.
O, sweet autumn,
Take me home in the wind.
