Brown Leaves

Some trees have brown leaves that refuse to drop;
Stubbornly clinging to branches: dry rot
Through deepest freeze, crowning certain trees
Won't take to the ground; to be tread upon,
To dissolve into fragments, one crisp step,
To dance precariously no longer.
Will April see them hovering still?
Or will cheerful pink blossoms show them out?

Nice metaphor for rugged endurance.
