Sherry and a Tree

invited to a glass of sherry

A senior said,
At times he felt just 
like 
that last leaf
Fluttering in the
Breeze

He asked aloud
how come 
the Lord had called 
all his friends
And not yet called
him home

my dad replied, 
that leaf 
may be

the last one, yet,
stretching 
to the sun -

and restless
in the breeze, 

looks golden, yet
and bathes in 
the world's 
bittersweet
mystery
