Summer's golden years shrivel
Decay away
Autumn unmasks
A beautiful season of fading
The leaves have their festival
Dressed in golden clothes
And frilly dresses
Their fiery color lights up the sky
Like candles
Striking, vivid
Impressive

Great poem, you really make the most out of the few words you use!  I feel that the first two verses don't really match with the rest of the poem (the 'festival' atmosphere), but that's just my opinion.  I might also get rid of the last two verses (end with 'candles') but again, that's just me :)
