Tremble, leaf, with all your might

Or you'll be left upon your branch,

Cursed to wither on your stem

Winter's fortress as your prison.

Dark days, cold nights, snow that deepens

Rattled by biting wind that howls out

Across frozen, buried landscapes.

 

When you at last are freed

Snowbound forest cannot hold you.

Skitter over icy cover

Respite evades at each turn.

If you settle flakes shall bury.

Your form will be encased until

Many a day rolls over Earth

And returns precious sunshine's heat.
