Shedding Innocence

The trees are dying
she cries
scampering  through
the shadowed wood
sun scraping
outstretched limbs
leaves fluttering
innocently
to a crisp carpet

The trees are dying
she cries
catching leaves
of liquid gold
in the day's last light
and I watch her cry
for the lost season
in shadowed pools
of autumn's demise

The trees aren't dying
I tell her
just preparing to sleep
through the winter long
to wake
greenly anew
come Spring's gentle kiss

The leaves are dying
I tell her
shedding old
to make new

I tuck her small hand
in mine
crossing the tender dark
small steps matching mine
ghost whispers
in our wake
