The Fall

The Fall

1 min 510 1 min 510

Rustling leaves vacate bough

Saying goodbye for now.

Making a place for a new life

To spring and come…

To serve and strive.

The leaves descend

In all their glory

Wheezing their last

Falling from tree

Blending with elements vast.


So long as it was there

It served the promised land

Breathing in the venom

Tenaciously it did stand.

Different shades and hues

It went through

Facing sunshine and storm

Clime dusty, cold and warm.


Leaving the bough, it wonders

Maybe it’ll fall in the lake

And float to shore yonder

Or lie on the boulevard 

And be trampled by wayfarers.


But it frets not.

Embracing the gales 

It wafts in glee.

Gloriously it did live

And magnificently fall!
