Cheating Winter

Dried and brown
The leaves they blew
Across the avenues

Leaves abandoned by a summer's drought
Cheated of their destiny
Of their brilliant hues

I sped through fallen leaves
On my way to nowhere
Escaping autumn's blues

Watched the leaves swirl in my wake
Through the rear-view mirror
Headed south to nowhere cheating winter too.
