Willow-Cutting in Autumn

Read "Willow-Cutting in Autumn" at The Eldritch Dark:

This beautiful haiku from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) speaks to my own memories from many years of living on the East Coast of the United States, where willow trees are so common and so noticeable throughout the year for their distinct "weeping" growth habit.  Once their small leaves begin to drop late in the fall season, they do indeed become "Slender wings of yellow."
