Bloodstained Leaves of Autumn

The bloodstained leaves of autumn fall like snow upon the threshold of the dying glow of summer whose conception shining rose from breath of tangerines, but now must go the way of brilliant life in last repose. But see not death in early closing day when falling shadows kneel as if to pray before the altar of a fading sun when summer's fragrant whisper turns to gray and blooming of the roses soon is done. See not as piteous alders weeping when October's taunting gusts come leaping and one by one pluck memories away of fuscia dawns that would come creeping and sweep us into reveries of May. Indeed, for lilac dreams there is a cost. Now we must bear the coming winter frost. Though raven wings will hover upon drifts of powder, rest assured not all is lost for soon enough grow April's chartreuse gifts.

    Wow, Dale, this is awesome. I LOVE "when falling shadows kneel as if to pray before the altar of a fading sun"- what a great image! And the gusts plucking memories, too. A fave.
