Goodbye for now

And so, we say goodbye for now
to this, our home away from home;
to rolling hills and charming villages,
to graceful clapboard homes
and winding roads;
to trees, just beginning
to take on their autumn glow,
to rushing rivers,
still high and brown with clay,
to the echo of wide board floors,
and the soft hiss
of muslin curtains,
blowing in the breeze.
