Exploring Human Experience through Poetry: Autumn

Known to some as the sublime season, "autumn" will be the focus of our poetry group this month.  It is a season of mixed emotions: a time of exhilarating beauty, grateful harvest and/or remembered loss.  Find a poet who expresses your feelings about the season or describes the vicissitudes of autumn with poignant clarity.  Join us for an engaging exchange of ideas about this favorite season for so many.

If you find an autumn poem or two to share, bring along some copies to distribute for ease of reading (8-10 should do). Or just come to participate in the discussion with others. Facilitated by Audrey Kingstrom, Community Coordinator for the Humanists of MN.

    The poems were all very good. The turnout is so good, that we probably will make more copies to bring in ... I know I will.

      These are great poems Mark! I was familiar with two out of the three. Glad to learn of the Nemerov poem. I really like it. And the Immortal Autumn is a favorite fall poem of mine. I had previously brought it to one of our poetry discussions; that's why I didn't bring it last night.

    Now, in the autumn of my years, I shall return to a passion of my youth, poetry, at least for an evening.
