Monhegan Autumn – Gus Bombard

The air is cooler now,
And summer’s search for
Frantic pleasures has slowed
To heavier clothing, more gulls,
And shorter days,
In our little splash of time.

The mists are bathed in
Golden fall glory, so
Except for the coming season,
Nothing much has changed:
Art and beauty remain constant,
As do the rocks and sea,
Human intrusion notwithstanding.

  1. I need to stay on the island Tuesday, Oct. 26 through Thursday nite Oct. 28, I’m doing research.
    I cannot locate the website I found for my July visit. That listed rates for Fall.
    I believe some places are closed
    my email address is above
    Thank you for your assistance and for the poetry.
