Lone Brown Leaf


Below the glorious tree on fire



Lone brown leaf, fallen to ground
Left me sad, on gray day.


But soon wind asks for dance
And Brown leaf accepts with joy.
She dances to the grass below
To wind she curtsies gracious low.
"Thanks for last dance, dear wind"
You gave great courage to me
For duty deep, is calling now 
To soil I must return that
other leaves, in spring, may grow.

  2. Very lovely poem. - It's true that leaves have to fall off for the new growth to arrive come spring.
    I like the idea of leaves dancing with the wind.
