	THE DANCE OF DRY AUTUMN LEAVES

	By Kevork K. Kalayjian, Jr.

	Clouds of marble
	In shades of sunlight
	Define the skies
	To my heart.

	Leaves of autumn flutter
	Dancing between the sidewalks
	In the vacant roads,
	Despite the red stop sign
	Near the corner of the street.

	My soul is also dancing
	Like the dry autumn leaves
	Full of hope, love and magic,
	In a jubilant crowd it appears,
	But it's a crazy, lonesome dance
	The dance of dry autumn leaves.
