Posted Notes – Autumn #1




Leaves of amber, brown, orange, gold, red, yellow fall

Wreaths of Summer’s boughs shed; be mellow and grateful,

And weave threads of advantages achieved, crowned full

Of homage to Amor, having taken hold of

A brief shred of courage, that words be not left till

You’ve allowed comfort-zonal weak-livered unwill

To leave leaden baggage to anchor you, to foul

You with bitter cold regret; Autumn’s colours pall
