There is for each piece of the world

a thing that is perfect in it.

November was empty until the chrysanthemums bloomed.

Across them, this morning,

a maple casts a shadow-trunk of frost.

Branches more beautiful than branches

shift across the fallen leaves.

(Part of a series of poems called "definitions")
