opening words

Autumn Alert

I have just returned from the northern woods and I bring alarming news. Something there is turning the leaves to red and gold . . . and it's coming this way. Already here one can see signs. An unfamiliar coolness in the air. Sailboats being brought in. Just this morning a school bus went by.
     Take warning, friends. Every leaf in our fair town is doomed, and every green unfinished summer dream will now be foreclosed. We have had our fleeting summertime.


Minister of the First Parish, Unitarian Universalist, in Duxbury, Massachusetts. This meditation appears in All the Gifts of Life: Collected Meditations, Volume Three, with essays, poems, and meditations by Walsh, Barbara Rohde, the Rev. Gary A. Kowalski, and the Rev. Meg Barnhouse. Published by the UUA's Skinner House Books; available from the UUA Bookstore (800-215-9076; $15).
