LEAVES IN THE WIND Wild and wet and windy weather Catches leaves and throws them by Fields, where cattle stand in silence, 'Neath the pale September sky. Rags of red and russet ribbons Cling like children to the trees. Torn unwilling from their parents By the mad October breeze. Leaves in limp and lifeless layers, Smother grass and broken, die. Fading where they lie in darkness Of the cold November sky. Wild and wet and windy weather, Blows through branches bare and clean. Cracks and whistles in amusement At the bleak December scene.
