Today's Public Poetry Announcement is inspired by the arrival of autumn.

The nights are darker and the wind is getting a little more biting. But the bright yellow and red leaves are still clinging to their branches. Today’s public poetry announcement celebrates that symbolic shifting of the seasons.

The director of the MSU Center for Poetry director Anita Skeen reads “In Blackwater Woods" by Mary Oliver.

Our Public Poetry Announcements are produced in partnership with the MSU Center for Poetry.
