Woodland In Transition

Elsewhere,

Copper leaves are forged by sunlight

On top of the ivory birch-tower.

Woodland in transition, intense color:

Silver, gold and emerald.

Many prepare for winter,

With a good leafcut and a coat of ivy;

Coal tits, wrens, sparrows and robins

Weave their music-smoke

In the cold November air.

Now forget what I said.

Do you dare

To be there?
