Shades of Autumn

Aspen trees in Roosevelt National Forest, Larimer County, Colorado

There stands a forest

Below snow-covered peaks where

A grove of Aspen,

Autumn’s golden shades

Grows beating nature’s fury

Undaunted and strong;

Mere flecks of yellow

In a mass of tall pine trees

Like a flower show.
