The Leaf


The Leaf

by Lisha


I found a leaf this morning
I saw it, full of love
I found a leaf this morning
It fell from high above
Isn't it too soon
To see a leaf of such colour
For it to be falling, too early
Yesterday I saw another

I found a leaf this morning
It brings to mind Summers end
I found a leaf this morning
Autumn's just around the bend
Oh the colours just amaze
Such rejoicing in my head
The warmth of gradiation
From pea green to rusty red

I found a leaf this morning
On my table it lays
I found a leaf this morning
Such love for Autumn days
The promise of coolness
Leaves fluttering from the trees
Enraptured by the colours
It's not too soon for me

Lovely poem Lisha.

Autumn is starting to appear here too. My all time favourite time of the year...

I thought the same thing when I saw some red leaves on our front tree - Lisha's special time of year is almost here!
