Don't fall
 Without you
 Turning. Hang on
 When the wind blusters
 Hold tight when the rain pours
 Watch the geese fly south. Behold
 The sun go dim or even wait
 For Halloween. Do anything but
 Fall without unfurling Autumn's banner.

Autumn is Good Friday's empty altar
Stripped of flowers, and colors, and life
Waves of purple draperies  hide
All glory from mortal eyes.
Our feet make leaden steps
Crush the ground below
Leaves crumble
No more
