Poetry Pleases: Fashions Of The Season

Violet Kendalís poem indicates that Nature is fashion conscious.

When all has gone
that made the Autumn blaze,
And shafted sunlight
fades to misty ray,
Then Winter weeds assail,
where flora once displayed.
And in their verdant sprawl
an arrogance prevails.
Strange models are the trees,
sparsely clothed and thin.
The fashions of this season,
Austere and sobering.
But not so for the robin,
elegant red trim.
Not for him the catwalk.
Life is beckoning.
