DPF / Wilbur

For autumn, from poetryfoundation.org . 
from The Beautiful Changes / by Richard Wilbur

The beautiful changes as a forest is changed

By a chameleon’s tuning his skin to it;   

As a mantis, arranged 

On a green leaf, grows 

Into it, makes the leaf leafier, and proves   

Any greenness is deeper than anyone knows.
