an orchestra of color a symphony of Fall
the brilliance of russet leaves on the mighty oak tall
the sun, gentle winds embrace each leaf alight
sweeping grace of russet held by each leaf in flight
feel I the dance of branch and bough in surrender's call
leaves in repose, the finale, the crescendo of Fall.
