The leafs destiny

 

Come O strong ye autumn wind

A yellowed wrinkled leaf did say

Hold me in your strong embrace

And from this world blow me away

 

Stay a while O wise old one

For your time is yet to come.

You ought to fulfil one last chore

Before you knock on heaven’s door

 

Left alone on this arid branch

And devoid of all my bloom

What purpose can I serve?

But inspire sorrow and gloom?

 

Tomorrow at noon of the day

A lone traveller will err this way

See you and admire nature’s play

And at twilight ye shall be blown away!

The leaf’s destiny
