Fall Poem

by Grace Finch

Where am I?

Flooded, like the tears in my eyes when I think of her.

Red, like my skin after a hot summer's day in the sun.

Tart, making my lips pucker, but not for a kiss.

Sweet, when you add a little sugar.

Vast, open space for room to grow.

A beautiful, colorful sight every Fall.

Where am I?

Do you know?

Cape Cod cranberry bog.
