A small leaf


Fresh upon an awkward tree,
floats a single small leaf on the brow,
the leaf looks as weak as old and pale,
but still the tree looks alive with a single lung,
all above the grief-stricken branches,
floats a small leaf on the brow,
fresh upon an awkward tree,
No matter how much, rain, heat or cold,
it still laughs and stands as bold,
as the grief-stricken tree stands on the shore,
one day with a ferocious wind, a storm came,
blowing wildly that tender hold of the leaf,
though the storm prevailed a day long,
the leaf cried not,
it still laughed and stood as bold,
as the grief-stricken tree stood on the shore,
the same day, a nightingale came,
sat upon those old branches of dusty glace,
and sang, sang for the whole day long, and-
next day when the crimson sun dawned,
blossomed a thousand flowers,
floated a thousand leaves,
fresh upon that awkward tree...

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
