Fallen Grape-Leaf

Read "Fallen Grape-Leaf" at The Eldritch Dark:

This is a rather sad little poem from Clark Ashton Smith (CAS), associating the fading colors of autumn with the speaker's "deciduous heart".  The suggestion is that the speaker himself is inconstant in his romantic affections, but that thought is alleviated by the eternal renewal of the seasonal cycle: love may yet bloom again, even as the spring does.
