Lee Slonimsky

Wane


I wish these woods would change their color
all at once

instead of meekslow hints of orange, tan,
but much of nature�s heart is patience and

it�s often only birds who hurry, as right now:

a flock that flurries, half tree height,
their black still glossy from last hour�s rain,
across this glen, as fast as summer�s wane
is slow,

    entangled in dense leaves, late light.
