feeling the approach

After yesterdays grumpiness I must redeem myself with something beautiful...
 
"Approach of Winter"
The half-stripped trees
struck by a wind together,
bending all,
the leaves flutter drily
and refuse to let go
or driven like hail
stream bitterly out to one side
and fall
where the salvias, hard carmine--
like no leaf that ever was--
edge the bare garden.


--William Carlos Williams
