Falling Leaf - Poem by Abdul Wahab

I run a brush
To paint a falling leaf
But among the glistering lines
I get a picture, static
On that I write a poem
But among the poetic lines
I miss the meaning of the sound
So I sing it in a full throat
Though I get majestic tune
But among the noises of wonderful music
I lose the agony of a falling leaf.

    in every dying soul
    in every falling piece
    there is majestic power of the nature
    and there is the agony of this soul and how in words one could seize the both
    is too hard to do
    but you grasped images of the two / well done
