autumn-daisyWhen only  autumn daisies bloom 
and the air reeks of rotting fungi
when all the leaves there are
are  on the ground
and beauty is hard to find

when all the world is wrapped in frost
and there's no warmth to have
when all the breeze bears  is a sombre dirge

when all comfort has been  stripped away 
and nothing else remains
what are you?
