Etudes - poem

Reading in bed last night, this poem totally charmed me. It's by Elaine Equi and is in Best Poems of 2007, previously published in "the tiny".


Autumn is solitude.
Winter is fortitude.
Spring is altitude.
Summer is attitude.

Summer is multitude.
Autumn is aptitude.
Winter is Quaalude.
Spring is prelude.

Spring is lassitude.
Summer is longitude.
Autumn is gratitude.
Winter is interlude.

Winter is beatitude.
Spring is platitude.
Summer is verisimilitude.
Autumn is semi-nude

This seemed to me too good not to share.
