Autumn Leaves: We Take One Last Look
In “A Reminiscence,” the poet Richard O. Moore refers to fall as a “golden balance” and the change in seasons as “a shifting of worlds.” In “November for Beginners,” poet and University of Virginia professor Rita Dove takes this sensory approach:
We sit down
in the smell of the past
and rise in a light
that is already leaving.
However you think of fall, for students at UVA Law, the school’s location — at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains — makes the season a vibrant part of the graduate experience.
As we pack autumn away and brace for the chill of December, take one last walk with us through a paint-dolloped Law Grounds landscape.
We suspect you’ll hear the crunch of leaves at every step.
