Summer leaves on autumn trees,
Wave to winter winds from a summer breeze.
Vivid red and shining yellow in the summer rain
The red leaf asks a squirrel for the yellow leafs name.
The squirrel darts back and forth all season long
Carrying messages from leaf to leaf of love poem and song.
The leafs could see each other but where too far to touch
And even for the squirrel this was becoming too much.
As autumn fell the leafs made their plans
To fall together holding hands.
They had talked of touch and wanted this,
So falling they knew that they must not miss.
The squirrel watched with baited breath as the both leafs left their trees,
She heard red leaf ask the yellow leaf to marry she said yes please.
Sadness over took the squirrel as she let her leaf friends go,
But like all great loves the squirrel knows there love can only grow.
