In Words of Color

The changing of the leaves
the season of autumn
oranges and reds
and pure simple yellows

But words of color
more varied than these
to explain, to visualize
what we actually see

A yellow finch of the weeping willow
the cranberry of this maple
maybe the brown paper bag
tanned hides of the oak
or the pumpkin of another

We are blessed with a vibrant palette
below the azure sky
needs a crayon box of words
a cornucopia of colors
to get it just right
