Staff Picks Staff Picks for November 2013
Posted by mamta on Tuesday, November 19, 2013 (16:49:19)

Autumn poems always have wonderful visuals mainly due to the changing color of leaves that lend color to the trees and the ground once they fall. My pick of this month is one such poem which is rich in imagery with lots of color and visuals.
