Excerpt

Fall Song

Darkly against the winter's white

The bundled lovers go,

And do, unless indoors at night,

No more than show

Delight.

The first beginning of the spring

Bids lovers to the lawn;

Chameleonlike against the thing

That sets them on

They cling.

Summer, in the disguise of green,

Deceives me least of all;

An undiscriminating screen

Where lovers sprawl

Unseen.

The bridled bloodshed of the fall

Reveals how to my spleen

Discamouflaged the naked crawl

Where the leaves grow lean

And fall.
