A trusting little leaf of green,
A bold audacious frost;
A rendezvous, a kiss or two,
And youth for ever lost.
Sooner or later I'm always drawn back to this more than fine poem.
A simple poem that resonates and calls to me.
One of those rarities in poetry that eternally shines and oh so brightly.
Thank you dear Ella and sleep well. Sleep well.
For you are and always will be, my greatest friend in time.
A trusting little leaf of green, .......a fabulous poem that can be read gain and again.....10
How can anyone ever tire from reading genius.
I do never tire of sheer brilliance!
This gets me every time I read it.
Superbly written and a joy to read.
The beat, the meter the flow and its magnificent message.
A trusting little leaf of green
A bold audacious frost
Youth for ever lost "
Fantastic imagery Great poem.
The brilliance of Ella Wheeler Wilcox.One of my favourites by my favourite poet.
You never really died Ella, You live on eternally through your magnificent prose.
I and many, many more miss you.
An awesome write and that too rich in rhyme, rhythm and philosophy about life.
Great write, , , , I like it
little race is run, good one
So wonderful read a poem on a Leaf!
A flaunting patch of vivid red,
That quivers in the sun;
A windy gust, a grave of dust,
The little race is run.
Were that the only one.
A poem of profound meaning. Youth and love enjoy, perhaps without knowing the distant fate, which in spite of it's inherent sadness, may carry a petty thing to feel happy about too. Great write. Congrats for being the PoD.X

And is Wilcox talking of leaves or romantic relationships? This the richness of this little well-crafted poem. -GK
Lovely poem. Fall’s transient beauty is sad and mesmerizing both. A vivid reminder of impermanence.
Soft, sweet and lucid impression to love the past.
Such a fine poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox....
