With the Flaming Shades of Fall



Colors burst in wild explosions,
Fiery, flaming shades of fall
All in accord with my pounding heart
Behold the autumn weaver
In bronze and yellow dying,
Colors unfold into dreams
In hordes of a thousand and one
The bleeding
Un-wearing their masks to the last notes of summer
Their flutes and horns in nightly swarming
Colors burst within
Spare me those unending fires
Bestowed upon the flaming shades of fall...
