    the leaves were umber and russet, the breeze was just present, and the sun hot enough to elicit a sweat
Thank you for this remembrance. I too have had to recite an Elizabeth Bishop poem for a writing/poetry class (as I've mentioned to you in the past) and it elicited tears from me too, but for how terrified I was to get up in front a group. -Not an easy thing at that point of my life.
