“The Fragile Season”
By Yvor Winters
 
THE SCENT of summer thins,
The air grows cold.
 
One walks alone
And chafes one’s hands.
 
The fainter aspens        5
Thin to air.
      The dawn
Is frost on roads.
 
This ending of the year
Is like the lacy ending        10
  of a last year’s leaf
Turned up in silence.
 
Air gives way to cold.
