Fallen Leaf Poem by Nosheen Irfan

Fallen Leaf

Rating: 4.9


Golden brown
Crinkled up
Edges torn
Or curled
Swishing along
The ground
At the bidding
Of the wind
How far will it go
How long will it roam?
Even a leaf will get tired
Of wandering
Wavering
What of man?

'Even a leaf will get tired'. Strength or swiftness will not stop a man from falling or becoming absent in the present. Wonderful poem.

What of man? Even man will fall one day. Nicely written.
