The whispering of leaves

The whispering of leaves:
Autumn begins its
‘come all ye’ song,
gentle as wool,
sheep’s clothing
for the wolf
of howling Winter.
The discarded confetti
of surrendering trees
decorates the path
for white wedding snow,
icy jewels
and the intercourse
of cold.
These are the nether days
when wardrobes
are opened
and summer dresses
entombed in hibernation.
