First leaf of Fall to fall


Yea, I shall be the first
Yet legions will follow
In my wake

I take the first step that
untold billions of my followers
Will also take

I am the first
Of an almighty
Vanguard

I shall lead them as one
Back to whence they rose from
To the loam of their reward

My followers will do
Exactly as I shall do
No question as to their fate

Their doom and mine
Tis written on the wind and
While I forge first the rest will wait

I’m not divine yet I’ve been chosen
Not truly a leader,
No not at all

I’m only the very (and it’s really quite scarey!)
The very first leaf That falls in
The fall

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
