To Give Myself Utterly

November 16, 2011

Blazing red maple tree

Maple leaves in reds and yellows

Reflections of red trees in plate glass windows

“I want to give myself
utterly
as this maple
that burned and burned
for three days without stinting
and then in two more
dropped off every leaf . . .”
— Jane Hirshfield, from “Lake and Maple”
