Summer-green Down

the summer-green leaves

of my maple tree

are edged with a shy blush

of scarlet trim.

the silky sighs

of the autumn breeze

gently ruffle

my red flushed leaves.

and the soft yellow

and the orange glow

and my dappled-rainbow

jigsaw-puzzle

of a maple tree

makes the fall downfall

so much  more

pleasant to me.
