Poem: Nearly Home

There shows up ahead

The blue shoulders and peaks

Of the Good Old Catskill Mountains

From this spot they are curtained

On both sides by the sight of Autumn's

Changed and leaf-fallen trees

One glimpses the tower at Mohonk

Sending its enduring vertical welcome

We'll soon be leaving the NY Thruway

That splendid road that gives us reach enough

To partake of many Big Apple doings

Brings us back to our neighbors and critters
