Autumn spices (cardamon, nutmeg, Grains of Paradise) filter like warm sunlight through a fantastical forest of Rosewood, Spice Tree, Black Mountain Cherrywood, and Mossy Cypress.
"It is woven of twigs of broken light,
With threads of scarlet and threads of gray
And a lining of down for silk delight.
To their Eden, the moon, fly home our doves,
Up through the boughs of the great spice-tree;—
And one is the kiss I took from you,
And one is the kiss you gave to me."
-- Vachel Lindsay (1915)
