The Last of Autumn


Today the Black Haw tree that came up wild behind our house
has seven crimson leaves still left hanging.
I feel that it would be a sin to let them fall unnoticed.
It seems so sacred the way they submit to the call of God and gravity.
Still full of vivid color they let go of their clasp to the mother
and dally down through the air to lie on the ground,
a love sacrifice to The Creator.
