Going out in a blaze

Something about the exuberance 
Of Autumnal colors is so heartening. 
Perhaps it is the hope 
That we could all go out like this: 
In a blaze of glory, a flame of passion, 
And that the losses at the end might be swift; 
A single storm that strips the branches bare — 
One day so bright, and the next, just — gone.
