Red and Gold

sometimes your story shone red gold
new penny wonderful or dreamed
in the drift of leaves for you for you alone

they're falling down and you're the
princess of red and gold town you tell yourself
before you're old and in a blue wind

turn the trees into friends.
but they were friendly before
and watched for you

every day
on your way through the red and gold
the red and gold

the red and gold
