Surrender This golden maple has shed its treasure Stands grey and stark Among silver skeletons

that rattle I walked today into the glade There was a rime of frost there crisping the lines of a turkey feather It marked remnants of other lives: maple leaf, fox pad, deer track The wind changed and flakes swirled A chill exhalation and I surrender -Susan Miller-Lindquist 11/4/10
