An Autumn Afternoon
Beyond the window’s shutters
all the birch leaves are golden -
they dance in the autumn breeze
as afternoon’s light twinkles
among the bright branches.
This moment, however, is tenuous
and will soon draw to a close.
Then the crows, silhouetted
against the bare limbs, will call
raucously across an empty forest.
