Autumn in the Park

To profess a dream once held in twilight
Of the resting sun relieving its post
Waves of ochre tinge and coat us in light
As leaves play downward and trees bow to host

You shimmy up to me in good humor
Each step playful when displacing the leaves
Your crimson attire leaves some rumor
Of the beauty and body your flesh weaves

In deepening shades the evening turns on
Shifting between the tea rose set in your hair
And the darker blood fruits, both come and gone
As we dance on as stars without a care

The crown of day slides past our horizon;
Reflections shared hold no comparison.
