Leaves alone the Earth to bare

As they fall here and fall there

Housing themselves the lost anew

To become part of the lathered dew

Wishing to be set on their own

Painting below together and alone

As parted company from their home

Stretch above immobile to roam

What would you say to thee?

Of why and how the journey be

Tossing the way the world forgave

Creating life’s colorful grave

To die or live we know not of

As we perceive only that home be above

An intruder to soil from the eye

But not mine that would pass on by

Only to notice mothers naked reproach

With bare arms of hope for you to roast

But kept with tree the knowledge of the past

That when it was the world did last
