Autumn (edited)

I see the days of shorter light,

Cupping the orange of blanket noon,

Across the humming hills of yesterday, 

And the trees of the acorn dune.

 

The crackled flame flickered a phoenix,

A phoenix of blooming ruby glows,

Ash bowed out the summer, 

As autumn winged and rose. 

 

A change is carried now on the ever cooling breeze,

Life begins to wilt and wallow,

Slips the clinging fingers of summer, 

Now falls her widowed leafs.
