West Tisbury poet laureate Emma Young read the following poem at the 2018 annual town meeting.

Tell time
in color, leaf,
in incremental
shifts in season.

The landscape
takes and keeps
us, we create
new crowns of care.

A garden
waves: a hello
from where
it’s laid.

An evermade
each greeting is of
its own moment.

The beauty of choice; through
our windows, ever
shifting light.
