A Lone Leaf Falls

A lone leaf falls
Lifted by the breeze
On it's lonely journey
Nearing it's bed 'neath the trees.
Early Autumn's upon us,
Leaves are changing 'fore our eyes.
Each one, in turn, will fall
and 'neath the tree will lie.
Falling leaves are the start.
Frost will next be here
And summer's warmth forgotten,
Left behind for another year.
Leaves of red and gold everywhere
Say Autumn's definitely in the air.
