Falling Leaves

I revel in the falling leaves
their fluttering flight to ground
I listen to the falling leaves
hear their pitter-patter sound.

Oh see, the ruby red, the pale gold,
the omnipresent sable brown.
Look, see the shivering birch let loose...
add their colors all around.

What glory's found, as form takes flight
each transformed, re-formed, astounds,
May we detach with such serene grace
when our earthly life's unbound.

Oh, listen to the falling leaves
see them rest, upon the breast of ground.

    This poem makes me want to run out and play in the leaves Debbie, despite the rain, I may just peak outside, maybe go ducking in the rain, thanks for cheering up my otherwise dull evening, love hugs vie

Tis As A Leaf Floating Joyfully Into Your Every Word. Then You Start Swimming Inside A Breeze Enchanting And O' Sooo Beautiful. Magical As Spellbinding, Would Be A Great And Accurate Discription. A Beautiful Favourite, By A Masterful Poet. My Love To You, Always, Rachel *
