Fading Footprints - Poem by Barry Middleton

footprints in the sand
fade with the tide

maple leaves in autumn
fade to final brown
roses return to earth
forgetting the summer

men fade and wither
bent by age or failure
and so the path taken
leads to fleeting victory

the tide rolls to and fro
without pity or regret
