First Line: The half-stripped trees
Last Line: Edge the bare garden.
Subject(s): Winter

The half-stripped trees
struck by a wind together,
bending all,
the leaves flutter drily
and refuse to let go
or driven like hail
stream bitterly out to one side
and fall
where the salvias, hard carmine, --
like no leaf that ever was --
edge the bare garden.
