Spoils of Fall

Feel the change, the darker and longer night, 
the glory in each leaf now russet gold... 
and so the October Mood of Nature's Grace...

Spoils of Fall

Two score of seasons has this garden tower seen
Holding time and touched by moss and leaves of green
A blanket now of russet fallen leaves, the spoils of Fall
From that mighty mighty oak tree, bold, strong and tall
Leaves possessed in flight rest now free
And above bough and branch barren be.
