Dark and cool inside
while the red camellia
burns, drops its petals.

They do burn, don't they? It always distresses me a bit. But thinking of it as burning not blackening is helpful.

Often this time of the year I will find a freshly dropped camellia flower, pale, but burned brown on the edges, next one that has been on the ground since last year, or more, and has turned to wood, almost.

OK, I've succombed to two ells in camellia. The Internet seems to think either spelling is ok, but I think the correct biological name does have two.
