Hail Autumn!

Hail red-haired Autumn!
You have cast off
The clammy blankets of
Summer from us and
Now the blue of your eyes
Look kindly down from
On high.

Your womb is full
Bursting ripe as plums
Your breath is cool
Carrying the scent
Of roses.

Just as rose petals
Must fall, you too shall
Turn to the earth;
But not yet. Do not go.
Stay and let us below
Enjoy your company for
A while.
