I punched out some leaves and used it as a stencil using Versa Mark Chalk stamp pads in yellow, mango, olive & java. Then with a Black micron pen shadowed the leaves. Added veins with a Brown Zig marker. The poem is written with the zig marker as well in a very loose italic script..


Matted with a rust brown mat and framed with a shiny gold metal frame

Ho! for the
Leaves that eddy down,
crumpled yellow and withered brown,
hither and yonder and up the street
and trampled under passing feet;
swirling billowing drifting by,
with a whisper soft & rustling sigh,
starting aloft to windy ways,
telling the coming of 
bonfire days
