Irish Autumn

Author’s Note: I drafted this poem many years ago for my wife. My handwritten notes simply bear the date “1990”, so I must have written it shortly after Robin and I married. For reasons unbeknownst to me at this point in life, it sat all these years gathering dust in my archives, until a faded paper copy of it fell out of an old album just recently, while Robin and I were cleaning out and preparing our “Momma & Grandpa” grandchildren’s nursery. I must have actually given it to her at some point. It sat in that album all these long years. A long-forgotten poem to my wife. A little serendipitous “Luck O’ the Irish”.

I took that as a hint.

I thought;

“It’s about time I dusted my Irish Autumn’s poem off.”
