Autumn's Shroud Autumn's shroud is a blanket of leaves deep calabash pockets filled with jasmine, myrrh, millennial curses, secret prayers, love's last poems, sacred soil. . . Autumn's shroud of electric, exploding mauve and cinnamon Harvest breath and bittersweet open-rooved tabernacles where we sleep under fullmo0n-coins for empty eyes Autumn's shroud is a Joseph's coat strung up a flag pole Is it good to have a land worth dying for?
