Alf W

A leaf has fallen!

A leaf has fallen!
Softly, slowly,
Momentarily lifted by a gentle breeze.
Turning over,
Softly landing by the trees.

A puff of wind
And over turned it rolls
Landing at a lady's feet.
It rests
And so the two did meet.

She, bending down
Took the leaf
And held it in her palm.
This golden, brittle texture
In the woods, so calm.

She pondered
If to take it home
Or leave it by the tree
From which she saw it fall,
As if set free.

Between the tree and leaf
The bond had been released.
It's time to fall was here
And new leaves in it's place
Would give all glorious cheer.
