SUNDAY ON THE HAWK

by Joanna Gilman Hyde

The Hawk Portico 4:22pm

On one of these rare days

in early Fall

so still

I’ve decided to stay

on The Hawk

instead of driving to Barrington

for a walk

on The Trail

while Hunter rows —

I cannot miss

this outdoor treat

of sitting in My Red Deck Chair

with My Front Door open

to The Sounds of My Daughter

readying in the kitchen

for tonight’s drive

back to

College
