Russet Reminders

admire the autumn
auburn; those leaves tell-tailing
summer’s shorter days

Word Origin and History for auburn,n: early 15c.,
from Old French auborne, from Medieval Latin alburnus “off-white, whitish,”
from Latin albus “white” (see alb ). It came to English meaning “yellowish-white, flaxen,”
but shifted 16c. to “reddish-brown”under influence of Middle English
brun “brown,” which also changed the spelling.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auburn_hair Auburn encompasses the color maroon,
but so too do chestnut and burgundy. In contrast with the two,
auburn is more red in color, while chestnut is more brown,
and burgundy is more purple; chestnut hair is also
often referred to as “chestnut-brown”.

into practice, for me. Also, I am going in my own order.
