Crawling leaves upon the sidewalk

As my jacket thwarts the chill

And the quiet task of shedding

Things that no longer fulfill


It’s a final act of glory

For the joys we felt in spring

Proof that there’s still beauty

In the loss that time can bring


As we wait for the renewal

Another chance for us to try

Connotations of forgiveness

In the breezes blowing by


As the trees disrobe before us

Unafraid to bear their skin

We’re reminded that an ending

Is what helps some things begin
