Petals Fall

Written by: Debbie Guzzi

The bloom is on us now and fear does make what's fragile quake pink and gold upon the bough petals quiver, fall, and shake. So thin, the skin, some opaque blossoms unfurl and lace the ground their life passes without a sound. Cry for the petal's fall yes, mourn the death of these little things the puss ywillow enthralls the halo of seeds on wing voiceless they bloom and fall down oh see fair Spring lose its royal crown.
