Ten Million Leaves



Straight trunks of aspen
stand solid and tall;
white wooden pillars
climb the foothills,
mingle with spruce,



where ten million leaves will
soon shimmer with golden light.



Then,
at the edge of evening,
the breeze subsides,
the quaking ends,
the calm returns.

Populus tremuloides !
