Falling leaves.

Your message reached me.
I'm not quite sure
How to interpret precisely what it said -
I never learned the language of flowers, even,
Still less that of autumn leaves.
The general import was clear enough:
I send you beauty, you are in my thoughts.
I'm a little shakier on details.
Is the precise shade of gold significant?
The size?  The subtle gloss?
No matter. Love is there, at any rate.
