PIROUETTE OF THE LEAVES

Dancing and prancing, they put on a show,
vibrant in costumes of radiant hue;
upward they spiral then downward they go,
waltzing with vigor in their flaming revue.

Twirling and swirling, in time with the wind,
flashing their colors in vivid array;
red, gold, and orange in picturesque blend,
they are the stars of the day.

Making the most of their transient time,
loftily flaunting their power,
reigning supremely in rhythm and rhyme,
they are the queens of autumn's brief hour.
