Latent Mardi Gras

Slender white birch in paper dress
Wears garlands of shimmering gold,
Delicate hands stretched over head
Autumn leaves, dancing in the wind

Oak wears supple woodland leather,
Rawhide gloves on his gnarled knuckles
Sowing seed for winter’s harvest
Autumn leaves, dancing in the wind

Flaming fire of sugar maple
Burns in hues of Persian red
Embers glow on the hillside hearth
Autumn leaves, dancing in the wind

A tapestry of colors bright
Blanket the distant mountainside
Like a grand Mardi Gras parade
Autumn leaves, dancing in the wind
