Autumn's Reign

Location

Rich caramel leaves

Once green and full of life

Lie anxiously, waiting

For pressure to end their strife

 

Controlled by wind

Frail and frightened

As the days grow shorter

Their numbers are heightened

 

Yesterday full of life

Today barely stitched together

Tomorrow cracked and broken

Then destroyed by the winter weather
