Sunlight forges
white gold:
                          all colors imbued,
                              save green,
                              with lust.

Green grows bold
ripe blades cut
by forged blade
to ripen.

Green is life outlasting
pale bones broken by root.
Green is death escaping
leaves shed for greener shoots.

Green devours light
  to tuck in night.

Trakl's Tree

Winds solicit limbs of this tree, shedding leaves of Trakl's poetry.
