AUTUMN COLORS

AUTUMN    COLORS


Trees, and endless squadrons of their fellows,       
In full dress with their medals, reds and yellows: 
An army in bronze and topaz uniform,
Ready and waiting for orders to fall in and conform; 
And in fall   -  with  its rich golden leaf
And needles polished   -  ready to guard its fief.
