To A Leaf Of The Acer Palmatum - Poem by douglas scotney

Your journey will be from green to yellow,
Or if not yellow, to red;
From yellow you'll go to much more yellow,
From red to much more red.

Red or yellow,
You'll end up brown and broken down,
Part of the never-changing scene:
Brown to green to red or yellow,
Red or yellow to brown to green.
