When Beauty Falls

He stands there, stoic and bold.

Naked, he shivers in the cold.

Slowly he buds, dressed in greens.

In his beauty now he preens.

The wind with her whispers that flow right through

Entrance him with the kiss of a lover true.

All summer long with the sun he plays

Shaking his leaves, catching her rays.

Before too long, the wind finds out

And whips his cheating heart about.

One by one, his leaves they fall

In a burst of flaming color, his vintage call.

They fall to earth like puzzle pieces

His love, his life, his beauty ceases.
