RED MAPLE

MAPLES

Leaves of fiery scarlet
reflect a crisp sun

rustle in a healthy mass
of autumn laughter

house an anarchy of crows
that screech at winters approach

until bare branches
balance snow

on slender
outstretched arms

Judith Pordon
C 1980

You really captured the color so perfectly. Some trees really are prettier than others.

Beauty! I really miss the leaves now that they are all gone. We have that brilliant colour for such a brief time.
