Leaves upon the ground;
frost upon the leaves.
This in between time
has come so quickly.
Autumn's glory gives way,
as winter creeps in: inch by inch
A hoary salutation
signaling the year's coming end.
Our warm breath
lingers in the chilly air.
In the shadows
our fingers touch the matte display.
Maple and elm fall prey -
the holly brightens
foretelling time and season's change.
Farewell Autumn,
beholder of bounty's decay!
We will wake one morning
to winter's stark, white beauty
And begin to wait. . .
