A Fallen Leaf Poem by Hazel Durham

A Fallen Leaf

Rating: 4.6


A fallen leaf from an old lime tree,
Trembling in the southerly breeze,
Like my heart running free,
Through unknown territory and a time to seize

Our love, as we steer our boat on the lovely river Lee,
The wind is like the seal of our kiss of united love,
The sky is like our faith in God above,
Peace is a bird like a white dove

Flying with our all consuming love,
As a sign of eternity,
Of adoring you and you adoring me,
To beyond the end of time,

When we will gather our dreams in our prime
And with courage to fend off any thief,
Like a fallen leaf
Trembling in the breeze,

We take stock as our feelings rock,
Around our twenty-four hour clock,
Soaking up the heat of the day
Drowning in the sudden burst of rain,

But we still hold hands along our way,
We travel in our hearts and souls down a winding trail,
You know at times I'm mentally frail,
But your soft, insightful eyes

Send me love letters through nature's mail,
Like a fallen leaf settled on solid ground,
With your loving force of nature all around.

Are you that fallen leaf, Hazel? Did you flutter nervously in the breeze searching for the security and solidity of a pair of loving arms, as unmoveable as the earth itself. Love the metaphor in this piece. Hope you found your love.
