Having pilfered
             the rich, ripe leaves,
she goes, pockets full
of all our memories,
hands grasping
            ‘til the very last
for more.

Fury and form collide
Even the moon
              vacates the sky.

Silence now
 but for the sighs
              of great trees
gone forever.
Darkness
but for the light of friends
             helping friends.
