Passing On

Passing On Empty Passing On

Post  Teresa Jane Price on Wed Apr 20 2011, 07:34

.

Swirling brown with a tad of yellow
Crosses the field and to the meadow.
Soaring like an eagle, it sees
Autumn shaking down the trees.
Swaying loose in the sky,
It's elated by it's high.
And hummed is a familiar tune
'Bout winter coming soon.
With it's mind set with ease.
It glides upon the breeze.
Evenso, it feels grief
For tomorrow, it's no more a leaf.

I'm not a writer, but this poem appeals to me. I like poems about nature, and this is pretty.

Have a nice day.

Hi Teresa. Like your poem. I've read it several times and each time the imagery gets richer. As you note, much of life as we know it can be summed up in the passing of a leaf. Well done!
