Changing Leaves

Blossoming from depths of endless gray,
Your browning boughs have given birth to flame,
That passing hearts are caught and eyes should stop
To gaze upon a beauty long forgot;

That by your flame another flame should burn –
As leaves do change, so barren hearts should turn
To find new love reborn within their wake,
Returning warmth to cold and youth to age.

    This was a most enjoyable rhyme for me to read. I especially liked how you ended everything in your last 2 lines~Chris

    It's always nice to re-light a warm flame. Nicely written.
