A Poem by our Writer in Residence, David Gilbert


Drawing down the mountain
gathering in the flock
the sound of distant bells
and soft rain.

The town settling at dusk
people coming home from work
a river running
under the bridge
and through the quiet town.

Then at the far end of the street
lights turning on
in a small house
once and now of belonging.
