Crackling footfalls upon crunchy dried leaves,

Fallen foliage of carmine, yellow and chocolate,

The autumn path covered with colored cadavers

The fallen remains of once green tree leaves

There I strolled aimlessly under cloudless sky

Those selfsame multi-hued leaves my daybed

An afternoon nap on a chilly afternoon in fall

A delicious antidote to melancholic emotions.
