Autumn

Autumn proverbs
the mountainous covenant descends.
Freedom plies, the toiling earth finds rest.
Surrender soul to the poet’s house.

Winter

Leaden footed winter.
Lumbering elephantine.

A pieced poverty of color
the house close-mouthed.
Silvery shards,
a fence frosted, still erect.
Leaden footprints of anticipation,
the tulips and daffodils quilled.
