Southern Autumn Equinox: Crab-apple Elf

The leaves are falling

One by one,

Soft goblin gold

Dust in the sun.

Vermilion-gold,

Now mellow bronze,

Slipping, falling,

One by one.

A crinkled curling leaf

All quivering gold-winged green,

And perched atop, a cross-legged elf,

Sly-winking, sprightly-lean,

With twirling tendriled toes,

Such sharp and saucy teeth!

He in his puckish mouth, slick-sucks,

Wry rose crab-apply meat.

(Green Pipes, 1929)
