My Favourite Leaf

My Favourite Leaf

When someone mentions leaves, I always think of fall,
It precedes winter’s introduction, a slow rambling crawl
Visualizing the leaves of burnt orange and crimson red,
Inspiring excitement for the celebrations that lie ahead. 

While most people think that the maple leaf is the prettiest of all,
Together these leaves display horizons, a brillant, colour sprawl,
But the leaf I love most is slid into my dining table to add length,
Means my family will sit all together again, our eternal strength.

    LOVELY!!! Strong family ties abound where laughter and communication resound and anything to bring families closer is to be welcomed. Very nice take on the theme Lee!

    A smart piece Lee, and a very substantive message too - my favorite leaves are the one that don't fall - its always great to read poetry that celebrates nature, such as family trees - J.A.B. %

    I love the twist you have taken with this wonderful poem, Lee!! I wish I had thought of this.....and now I can agree that the favorite leaf I too, will now think of under this topic...will be the leaf that brings our family together!! (and it actually takes more than one leaf to fit us all around the same table!!)

    A nice take on the use of a different kind of leaf. not so many tables have them these days. and you are so right, nothing beats the family all around the one table. well penned Lee. good luck....cheers Margaret
