On Wilder Avenue

— Leslie E. Hoffman

You turned your back and walked away
Under boughs of elm shedding golden leaves
Leaving me with unsettled heart
Second guessing

Words I’d spoken
Under boughs of elm shedding golden leaves

Forty years traveled, our paths again cross
Regret collides with tomorrow’s intention

And, in that time—the years between—
Separate journeys conspired
To reunite us
Under boughs of elm shedding golden leaves
