A Fallen Leaf

Rating: 2.6


(dedicated to Ms. Lorraine Hunt, a great mezzo-soprano)

a fallen leaf
hugs the roof
a fallen leaf
sends a grief

a fallen leaf
has to leave
a fallen leaf
such relief

a fallen leaf
smiles to me
a fallen leaf
touches me

a fallen leaf
dreams of me
a fallen leaf
loves me

O fallen leaf!
no more, no more
you left me
no more, no more

O fallen leaf!
be with me
wherever
be with me

A fallen leaf brings out the warmth and glowing parts of your poem. The repetition makes it even more interesting. A very good write. Your friend Lynn

It is not clear why a fallen leaf loves you? The subject is interesting though.
