Autumn Gift (11/01/83) a poem I wrote for Robert 35 years ago. I sent him a box of autumn leaves because California didn't have an autumn.

Robert of the sunrise smile,
This leaf is for you.
In this leaf see a tree,
Golden in the first ray of rising sun.
Robert of the beginner's mind,
This leaf is for you.
In this leaf see a tree:
In that tree see the warmth of the autumn sunset.
In that warmth
Feel the presence of God.
Robert of the Tao,
This leaf is for you.
In this leaf
See a tree, golden
Against a storm-gray sky.
And in that tree experience
The Tao of Heaven.
