while in her silken bower,

graceful limbs bewitch,

a spur to fateful passion

for when spent, he cannot flee.

goaded by the breeze,

until losing grip, they fall,

their moment of freedom, brief.

Bright golden lances

pierce the towering grey clouds,

sun’s strength faltering,

feverish feeding begins

preparing for the Winter.
