Aloft On Icy Winds


Aloft On Icy Winds

A perfect single leaf

Trembling

Upon the ground

Curling

Towards the autumn dawn

In supplication

The suppleness of youth

Already faded

Harsh winter lines

Already drawn

Heavily

Across her face

Forlorn and abandoned

Her voice now a whisper

Ravaged by the season

She is fading from view

Aloft on icy winds
