A Frozen Leaf - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

A frozen leaf is found
Of yellow golden green
On the winter’s ground
Earth and ice between
Once in summer gave
Its emerald foliage on
Rain and blue did crave
Its days are now gone

Fields of summer past
Ice-covered earth way
Existence goes on fast
Long nothing shall stay
Forget not the pleasures
Those once were made
Colored tone treasures
Each lay and true shade

Earth is full of findings
That we shouldn’t forget
In delight posy bindings
And perfect in its set
Beauties of yesterdays
That once gave so much
Now in period of grays
Can still our heart touch
