Symbolism- Dancing Leafs.

Like girls before a grand ball.
They drown themselves in silks dyed of the brightest yellows, oranges and reds.
Shivering in anticipation; they wait for the dance to begin.
Then slowly it starts.
A few wispy lads twirl away with a few.
And before long, the gallant gentlemen are sweeping the ladies away.
Faster and faster the girls are whisked away and fall, if only of this one day, madly in love.
But soon the festivities are over.
The girls vibrant colors are dulled.
A strange, eerie silence embraces all.
However, they are unconcerned.
Exhausted by the evening, they yawn, laying down to rest.
Until the next season, where they can once again dance.

Shiver
