Behold The Beauty Of A Single Leaf - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Behold the beauty of a single leaf,
Turning colors in the setting sun.
Till a chill wind like a thief,
Snatches it, and it is done.

Then it graces the cooling ground,
With it's brothers by it's side.
A myriad of rainbows, or painted clowns,
The joy they bring is hard to hide.
