The Last Leaf

 

Nearly winter

Trees are bare

But look up high

What have we there?

A single leaf

Is hanging on

When the others

Are long since gone.

A touch of colour

In the sky

You can't help

To wonder 'Why?'

Is it from shelter

Of the rain

That from falling

It could refrain?

Is it cover

From the breeze

That hasn't caused

Its life to cease?

But how much time

Does it have left

Before the tree

Becomes bereft?

Its days are numbered

Nature's sure

There's no escape

There is no cure.

Another hour

Another day

This leafs demise

Is on its way.

And then in spring

More buds are clear

And just look!

More leaves appear

To sway in wind

And bask in sun

But even now

Their death's begun.
