Of all seasons the fall. The fall of all seasons.
The big shebang of life
The fabled frolics
The joys of saturnalia
Like willful wisps all
Coming to their ends
Being washed away
With pouring waters
And whipping winds
As Mother Nature
Restless Gaea
Wraps her bony shoulders
In her brittle frock of rust
Dons somber jewels of sunset rouge
With her whirling skirts of devil’s dust
From her lips, the age-old lullaby

Settles by the brook of Chronos
To cool down her burning feet
Dry up her damp, matted hair
And wither with her prior vim
From her unwavering hands, though
Fall of summer
Fall of rain
Fall of leaves
Falling through air
Fall
Fall of light
The fall of everything
The fall of mankind

Dead earth rustles
The seeds of yesterday
Are trampled underfoot
Comes forth Hecate
The first of her faces unveiled
Cupped in her supple hands
The goblet of rot
Shameless, burdenless
She strides toward the long, long night
For winter’s tacit cleansing of this blight
