Autumn in Passing

Autumn in passing,
each year for a certain months,
it’s duration is as fleeting as leaves changing.
Each leaf that falls,
the time for holding it in a sigh,
is as short as the time between the green preceding
and the white blanket that arrives one snowy dawn.
How I cherish it
until it settles about my feet
and
is
no
more.
